Celebrating the publication of ‘Amy Winehouse: Beyond Black’, released on Thames and Hudson, BME is excited to present a panel discussion and book signing with author and Amy’s stylist Naomi Parry, close friend Catriona Gourlay and Culture Editor of VICE UK Emma Garland.
Amy Winehouse left an indelible mark on both the music industry and pop culture with her soulful voice and bold 60s-inspired aesthetic. Featuring stories and anecdotes from a wide range of characters connected to Amy, specially commissioned photography of memorabilia, styled and dressed themed sets incorporating Amy’s clothing, possessions and lyrics, and previously unseen archival images, this volume presents an intimate portrait that celebrates Amy’s creative legacy.
Interspersed throughout the book are personal reflections on Amy’s life and work, provided by her friends, colleagues and fans. Each one has a personal story to share and together their anecdotes and reflections build into a complex picture of a much admired but troubled star. Editor Emma Garland puts these insights into context with an introduction that highlights the principal events and achievements in Amy’s life and work, and the key characters that played a part in it.
The panel discussion will be followed by a book signing.
Books are available to purchase on the evening from Pritchards of Crosby.
The event will take place on Friday 19 November, all tickets £8.00 per person.
