Josh and Judy's Speed Read
Looking for adventure, romance, political satire? Worried about what’s left on the shelf? We helped participants find a book they will treasure for years to come. 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.
Judy Batalion is a Canadian writer, performer and lecturer based in London. She is currently performing stand-up, compiling an anthology about comedy audiences, and teaching at Central Saint Martins.
Josh Cohen’s credits include The Graduate and Rent in the West End, A Chaste Maid in Cheapside at the Almeida and What We Did to Weinstein at The Menier Chocolate Factory. He recently narrated Into the Hoods for Sadlers Wells and The Edinburgh Festival.
