Ditch the daisy dukes, crack a Bud light and get ready for a dreamy American evening. You’ll be seeing stars and stripes after this one. Yeehaw, y’all! It's Naked Girls Reading: The Americana edition!

Naked Girls Reading is exactly what is sounds like - completely naked women reading literature aloud. It's a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling - and also, you know, boobs.

This October, we’ll get getting our kicks from Route 66 all the way to the Rockies, from the bible belt to Boston. These unclad, clever ladies have picked their favourite bits of iconic American literature to recite for you. Expect excerpts of everything USA - from Maya Angelou to Lin Manuel-Miranda, Hemingway to Harper Lee, from Dorothy Parker to Annie Proulx. (Perhaps even some Beyonce!) We’ll be sauntering through the literary landscape of all things Yankee in an evening. It’s a night not to be missed.

This month’s N.G.R. is a very special edition featuring three superstar performers all the way from the United States - undressed and down under for one-night only!

- Holly Dai (USA): the long-legged lovely
- Lola Couquette (USA): Sweetheart of the south-west
- Emma Wollum (USA-ish): comedian, accordionist, Ms Frizzle incarnate

Hosted by the adorable Hugo Grrrl.

And don’t forget to try our special Naked Girls drink deal - ‘The American Pie’!

The main event will be followed by cocktails and conversation - so be sure to stick around, chat to the cast and perhaps do some reading of your own.

And remember, you can’t spell ‘literature’ without ‘t’ and ‘a’!

Please note that latecomers will not be admitted.
