Get your tickets to attend the 'Writing Houses: Dwelling on Dwelling' event with Alan Hollinghurst, Andrew Motion and Rowan Moore, plus win a signed copy of The Stranger's Child

Houses have played a central role in many of the greatest books in history, and have been the setting for some of the most memorable moments. Moving in, moving out, or indeed being trapped inside - whatever the circumstance, there is no doubting the importance of houses in our lives, and in our writing.

On Monday 19th September 2011,  2004 Man-Booker Prize winner Alan Hollinghurst and former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion will join Rowan Moore to discuss the idea of 'houses' in literature.  Both authors will read from their own work, as well as considering the work of others, and answering questions from the audience. The event will begin at 7pm at King's Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG.

Competition ends on Monday 19th September 2011, winners announced the following day. Good luck!
