Altonative Culture: Black Book Swap 4

  • Nov 30, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Black Book Swap returns to Brixton!  For our fourth event we're excited to welcome:

Bernardine Evaristo author of seven books including three critically acclaimed verse novels, 'Lara', 'The Emperor's Babe' and 'Soul Tourists'.  Her latest work 'Mr Loverman' is her second prose novel.  Published in August it is described as a ground-breaking exploration of Britain's older Caribbean community, which explodes cultural myths and fallacies and shows the extent of what can happen when people fear the consequences of being true to themselves.

Lloyd Bradley author of ‘Sounds Like London: 100 years of Black Music in the Capital’ which tells the story of black music from the wave of Commonwealth immigration in the '40s to the present day.

Irenosen Okojie an emerging talent praised by Alex Wheatle MBE and called “unique and imaginative,” by Orange Prize winner Diana Evans.  She's featured in a new anthology 'Flight'.

Nadifa Mohamed a Somali-British writer named as one of Granta Best of Young British Novelists earlier this year.  Her latest work is 'The Orchard of Lost Souls'. 

As usual we’ll have a large selection of novels and non fiction books available to swap or buy so remember to bring along books that you’ve enjoyed and are willing to part with.  

This is a full day event and you'll be able to purchase food and drinks during break times from the Ritzy bar and restaurant or other nearby eateries.

Space is limited and tickets will sell out, so please book your tickets online here

Don't worry if you're unable to purchase a ticket in advance as we'll be accepting payment on the door at £10.00.
