Jon McGregor launches his first novel in seven years here at Nottingham Contemporary.
Reservoir 13 is about a teenage girl who goes missing - and stays missing - in a Derbyshire village, and about the lives of all those affected by her disappearance. Roddy Doyle has already called it "quite extraordinary," and you shouldn't argue with Roddy Doyle.
A reading at 8pm, with music from Richard J Birkin and Haiku Salut, will be followed by drinks, a chance to buy the book, and live music from Django's Tigers.
Doors open at 7.30pm.
Free, no booking necessary but we recommend arriving early to avoid disappointment.
