WHAT THEY SAY...

Not only is That's What She Said a great place to see talented literary performers, for everyone and not just women, but it provides a space for women to shout and scream their anger, their frustrations, their desires; a space without censorship, without objectification and without the dreaded “it must be her time of the month” quip. I think For Books’ Sake is doing some really important work." (Recent review of one of our London shows)
Can't make it? We'll be back in January. Want to get involved? Send us an email to bridget@forbookssake.net and we'll see what we can do!
