It’s how I like my donuts, and it’s also the name of the much trendier (and not rival- we don’t do rivalry*) Brixton book event – the Brixton Book Jam, who are returning for another event:

The next Brixton BookJam will be on Monday 5 June 2017 at their regular venue The Hootananny, Brixton.

Speakers include: Paul Bassett-Davies, Alex Wheatle, CN Lester, Toby Broom, James Nuttall, Leila Segal, Danny Scheinmann, Matthew Miles, Zelda Rhiando, Paula Lennon, Oliver Cable, Merlin Sinclair and Anne Cooper, and music from Robert ‘Hacker’ Jessett.

You can find out all about it on their website: www.brixtonbookjam.com

*as long as we don’t have to duke it out with the film group** again Anchorman style.

**we love the film group really

And finally:

Next meeting date clarification: the Power

I made a mistake on the date of the next meeting which the site merrily emailed to everyone before I could correct it. We’re meeting on the 14th of June on the Wednesday in the Effra Social from 7.33pm – as always everyone is welcome.



I’ve got the Power

We had a packed group outside to discuss the Sellout, the merits of the Prius as a vehicle and how everyone now wants to be a bus driver.

It looks better as a thumbnail..

The book for next time is The Power by Naomi Alderman – runners up included Vurt by Jeff Noon, Moonraker by Ian Flemming, East west street by Philippe Sands, and Not My Father’s Son by Alan Cumming.

Next meeting (it’s a Wednesday again) is the 14th of June.



Strong and stable sellouts in their personal interest

Hello everyone,
we had a lively and packed discussion to talk about the impending doom of our one state country Essex Serpent where we talked about jolly penis metaphors, how old the tube is (although it was only called the tube after 1900 when the Central Line was opened and it was nicknamed the twopenny tube for it’s flat fare and cylindrical layout) and how nice it would be to go and visit Essex. Pete made a weird comment about the monster origins of Godzilla and plenty of beer was drunk.


Book for next time is The Sellout by Paul Beatty and we’re meeting on Wednesday* 24th of May in the Effra Social at 7.33pm

*note that as it’s a Wednesday we might have to meet in the main room so we don’t have a clash royale with the Knitting Group

Runners up included: Nora Webster, The Pursuit of Love, Use of Weapons, Kindred, The Penultimate Truth, When Breath Becomes Air, The Stranger in the Wood, The Invention of Nature & Norwegian Wood.

Don’t be disheartened you can always pitch again and again!

Plus at some point this summer we really need to talk about our long read: Infinite Jest.
