Participants brought along their favourite underrated book and enthused about it for 1 minute – speed reading rather than speed dating. Guided by the hosts Josh Cohen and Judy Batalion, a whole world of literature was discovered in the space of an hour, and there was a chance to win a mystery literary prize.

We also had Canadian comic Judy Batalion, multi-talented Penelope Solomon, everybody’s favourite UK-born Borshtbelt entertainer, Sol Bernstein, and dazzling Adam Bloom. It was a night to remember.
