About Brixton BookJam

The Brixton BookJam is an unpredictable, intelligent and FREE event for people who are passionate about books and the written word. It’s a mix of readings, and talks, chatting and socialising. From people who love to read through to A-list authors, ghost writers, erudite editors, self-effacing self-publishers and literary lexophiles, everyone is welcome!


Well that was amazing! 11 writers from Brixton and Japan entertained a very enthusiastic and focussed crowd. Listen to the BookJam on SoundCloud

The next BookJam will be on 2nd June 2014 at the Hootananny. Look to your right for the flyer!
