We're delighted to welcome DAVE HASLAM back to Walthamstow

To mark the publication of ‘Adventure Everywhere’, Dave Haslam’s short format book about Pablo Picasso’s Paris nightlife, Dave Haslam will be joined by Andrew O’Hagan to discuss big nights out; Picasso, Haring and the Hacienda; and the links between art and life after dark.

Dave Haslam is a former DJ at the Hacienda in Manchester, a journalist and the author of several other full-length and short format books. His DJ-ing has taken him to the likes of Berlin, Lima, New York, and Paris. His memoir ‘Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor’ (2018) was proclaimed Book of the Year by Gilles Peterson. His current project is a series of short format books; subjects have included Sylvia Plath, Keith Haring, and the Angry Brigade.

‘Adventure Everywhere: Pablo Picasso's Paris Nightlife‘ - is the seventh book in the Art Decades series.

Andrew O'Hagan was born in Glasgow in 1968 and grew up in Ayrshire. He has three times been nominated for the Booker Prize, and has won the Glenfiddich Writer of the Year Award, the Lost Angeles Times Book Award, and the E.M.
