Mon July 2 at 7:00 PM, Hootananny
95 Effra Rd, London Borough of Lambeth, SW2, UK (Map & Directions)
The Brixton Book Jam is an eclectic gathering for people who are passionate about books and the written word. It’s a mix of readings, talks and panels, chatting and socialising.
What happens: twelve invited writers and book-people are each given five minutes to either read from their work or talk about a book-related subject that interests them. After that a few of them will come back for a panel discussion and to answer any questions that the audience may have about books and book-nature.

From people who love to read through to A-list authors, ghost writers, erudite editors, self-effacing self-publishers and aspiring scribes, everyone is welcome and many of them will speak. In between there will be food, drink, conversation, pitches and signings, and at least one really good argument about typefaces. MeFites will fit right in.

This sounds great, but I can't make it on 2 July. I'd be interested in future dates though.

Sounds very interesting, and seeing as its only 10 minutes walk from my flat, I think there's a good chance I'll come down.

Splendid! I will be the tall fellow making an ass of himself on stage.

Excellent! I will be the male half of the two stereotypical librarians drinking cider. I'll try to say Hi when you're not otherwise engaged.

That was a good evening, thanks for publicising it here. I saw you on stage (obviously) and was standing quite close to you a few times but you looked deep in conversation with people. Let us know about the next one, I'll try to get there earlier and say hi.
