"The Slap" bookreading at Kaufleuten



Friday evening my friend Katie and I went to the Kaufleuten venue in Zurich for a book reading of "the Slap" by the author, Christos Tsiolkas. I loved the book when I read it. Christos was so interesting, had lots of interesting points to make about writing in general, the context to the book, the TV adaptation of it (see notes below). The evening reminded me that I need to find more time in my life to be creative and get creative cultural inputs!
Had a quick chat with him afterwards, told him how much I loved the book and the film adaptation and he signed my copy!
