We recently posted about Manchester’s home-grown band Everything Everything (pictured) curating a week-long schedule of events and experiments at Central Library, named Chaos to Order. Its presence has proved popular as tickets for one event after the other have been snapped up, but here’s how you can still get involved…

Chaos and Shape: Manchester Fiction Showcase
Visitors are treated to an evening of the city’s hottest new fiction writers talking about their creative processes, along with a sneak peek into their latest works. The bill features Emma Jane Unsworth, Kerry Wilkinson, Chris Killen and Zoe Lambert – who have collectively won a Betty Trask Award, outsold Dan Brown, won the Best Comedy Feature award at the London Independent Film Festival and been shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize (and those only scratches the surface).
