Polari: Featuring Julie Cohen

Popular author Julie Cohen headlines the beloved LGBTQ+ literary salon as it prepares to dazzle your imagination in its first showcase of 2019.

An award-winning novelist whose books have sold over a million worldwide, Cohen has twice been selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club. Her bestselling novel Together has been translated into 13 languages and optioned for television adaptation.

Her latest novel, Louis and Louise, follows the life of a single protagonist in two realities: one ion which they’re born male, and one in which they’re born female.

Also reading from their latest work this evening are Alex Reeve, Sophia Blackwell, Chris Neill and West Camel.

Polari is in its twelfth year of residency here at Southbank Centre.
