To celebrate the launch of his new book 'Death Of A Polaroid' - A Manics Family Album, Nicky Wire will be in conversation with Dorian Lynskey, author and Guardian music critic.

Documenting more than twenty years of the band's career, Nicky Wire has kept a personal visual history of the Manic Street Preachers' various evolutions and travels across the world, right from their early beginnings in Blackwood, Wales. Nicky will discuss his passion for polaroid photography and the history of the iconoclastic band, and take part in a book signing following the Q&A.

The event, brought to you by Faber & Faber in association with the Guardian, will be hosted here at Rough Trade East on Wednesday 16 November.

An exhibition of Nicky's own polaroids will also be on display in the shop from 16th - 30th November.

Tickets for this special event are exclusively available to Guardian readers, at £11 or £9 for Extra members.

An invite will also be included with preorders of the special limited edition hardback version from Rough Trade. More information on the book can be found here.

Here's a video of Nicky Wire introducing the book and talking of his love for Larkin...
