McNaughtans Non-Fiction Book Club - Empire of Pain by Patrick Radden Keefe - 8/2/23 @ 6.30pm


The Sackler name adorns the walls of many storied institutions - Harvard, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Oxford, the Louvre. They are one of the richest families in the world, known for their lavish donations in the arts and the sciences. The source of the family fortune was vague, however, until it emerged that the Sacklers were responsible for making and marketing Oxycontin, a blockbuster painkiller that was a catalyst for the opioid crisis-an international epidemic of drug addiction which has killed nearly half a million people.

In this masterpiece of narrative reporting and writing, Patrick Radden Keefe exhaustively documents the jaw-dropping and ferociously compelling reality. Empire of Pain is the story of a dynasty: a parable of 21st century greed.



Launch Party - Things I Have Loved by Sophia Hembeck - 15/2/23 @ 7pm 

We’re so excited be hosting an event with writer and visual artist Sophia Hembeck to celebrate the launch of her second book of essays Things I Have Loved.

About the book:

Things I Have Loved is the second book of the poetic memoir trilogy by Sophia Hembeck.

Told through objects Hembeck has loved, she is weaving a narrative that examines the themes of love, longing and self-worth.

By diving deep into memories of her own life, pop-culture and (lost) objects she is getting to the core of how we love and why.

If Things I Have Noticed was about growing up and finding yourself Things I Have Loved is about the things that were lost/missed/gained along the way


Open Mic Reboot VI - 19/2/23 @ 7pm 

Edinburgh's anarchic open mic night where there's no limit on what can be performed, only how much time performers get! We run for 90 minutes, and divide that time by the number of performers who sign up to get our set times. There's a bell 30 seconds before the end of each set, and a gong at the end which performers CANNOT go past! Sign up is 7-7.30 - comedy, music, poetry, short stories, film scripts, magic acts - we've had all sorts over the years, so just rock on down!
