The Bardroom brings back two beloved local authors to present their new books and will also feature singer/songwriter Grayson who’ll be promoting his new album. The event, on July 8 at 7:30pm, will also be a return back to the old home of the Bardroom, the Nyitott Műhely at Ráth György utca 4 (near Déli Metro station).
Bob Dent, who has already published a number of books and guides to Budapest as well as having been recently honored with the Budapestért prize given the municipal government for outstanding service to the city, will be reading from his new Every Statue Tells a Story- Public Monuments in Budapest, a fascinating cultural study of the city’s public sculptures and their historic and artistic importance. Adam LeBor, who has already published numerous books, including a critically-acclaimed investigative work on Swiss Banks, a biography of Milosevic, and a historical tableau of the city of Jaffa, now presents his first fiction work, The Budapest Protocol, set in the intrigues of wartime Hungary. Singer/Songwriter Grayson will be performing live acoustic works in promotion of debut album, Somewhere In The Night.
The event will feature the usual audience-pleasing quiz questions and prizes, as well as the traditional poetry-writing contest.
