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!


The next BookJam will be on 6th October 2014. Writers to be announced shortly. Look to your right for the flyer!   Meanwhile, we’re really excited that Radio 4′s Open Book will be featuring the BookJam on their show on 24th August.

We will also be running a Kids BookJam on 18th October at Number 6. Somerleyton Road. If you’d like to be involved, then please get in touch over at the Organisers page.
