By Events, High Street

With the Harborne high street now home to Waterstones, we have a number of fantastic author events each month, welcoming talent from the West Midlands and beyond to Harborne!

This April, Waterstones is hosting two author events!

On Tuesday 16th April at 6pm, Tracy King will be discussing Learning to Think. 

A writer based in Birmingham and London, Tracy King started her career in marketing and PR before moving into the realm of freelance work and building a following with her critical writing and commentary on science, technology, politics, medicine, film and video games. 

The success of this writing has led to features in New Statesman, Guardian, Stylist, the Telegraph, and The New European.

With Learning to Think, Tracy King shined a light on her own life. The memoir revisits the author’s experience growing up in Birmingham in the 80s and covers topics from religious superstition to an exorcism to the power of a scientific view of the world.
