Essentially, we want to create the moment that an adult looks back on and says – ‘That was when I fell in love with books!’
We started the Brixton BookJam in 2012 to create a new type of literary event consisting of very short readings from a wide range of writers. The BookJam has been a resounding success, and we want to use our winning formula and extend it to create a free and inspiring event for children: to encourage them and their families to get excited about books and support their long-term appreciation of reading.
This is the first Kids’ BookJam and we would like to make this a termly event. We selected No.6 Somerleyton Road becasue it is a community space that is in the very heart of Brixton. The two main indoor spaces mean that separate activities can be held simultaneously: readings in the large light performance hall, while in the smaller soundproof room we can run separate workshops.
Just as with the BookJam this is a completely free event and we hope that this will be a springboard for the Kids’ BookJam to become a regular part of the local schools teaching programme. Shop the mulberry replica online free shipping.
