JOHN CALDER :A LIFE INDEED!
Wednesday 26 June
7.30pm; Voice Box, Royal Festival Hall; £5 (conc £3)
'Publish and be damned' runs like leitmotif through the
life of John Calder, one of Britain's most
controversial post-war publishers and now the man
behind the new Calder Bookshop in The Cut, Waterloo.
His list of writers sounds like a roll-call of those
damned by a strait-laced English establishment: Henry
Miller, William Burroughs, Alexander Trocchi and Hubert
Selby Jr. And indeed he went to court for the right to
publish. Calder also famously published Samuel Beckett,
and some of the greatest exponents of the nouveau
roman, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Marguerite Duras and Claude
Simon. Now John Calder has published his own story,
Pursuit. Tonight he discusses his extraordinary career.

HOMELESS: FIGURES FROM THE STREETS
until Saturday 6 July
St George's RC Cathedral
Sculptures by Alex Worster depicting the plight of
homeless people, positioned in various parts of the
Cathedral nave and chapels.  The exhibition is being
organised by the St Martins in the Fields Social Care
Unit, and will also be touring to the Public Records
Office in Kew, and St Bride's Church, Fleet Street. The
sculptures vary in size, and produce a powerful effect
in their portrayal of people and social conditions,
which it is all too easy to take for granted and simply
walk past.
