Additional Information

17th April 2013. Bangkok and Thailand based writers read from their work and discuss the craft. Chris Coles will be showing some of his work and discussing the impressionist movement and how it relates to Bangkok noir. There will be live music and film noir. Having been open now for almost fifty years the Checkinn 99 has been voted as Bangkok's top night spot and was a recent feature in the Stickman weekly blog. The venue has held court to stars such as Bob Hope. Doors open at 7.30pm and there is a cover charge of 100 baht. Authors and artists will bring along books for signing and will be more than happy to meet some of their readership. If you are in Bangkok on the 17th April (after all of the Songkran celebrations) then this is the place to be. Any Bangkok authors or artists wishing to participate please contact your host at
