Book Night in Fitzrovia

The North London Reading Group has launched Bookstock, its first literary evening, to be held at 7.30 tomorrow, 31 July, in the upstairs bar at the Blue Posts public house in Newman Street, Fitzrovia.

The group's website says the event, which has been widely announced in the capital's press, is almost sold out already, so if you are in London and fancy a night of books, poetry, comedy and the odd pint then book online now.

Fitzrovia - the area roughly north of Oxford Street and west of Tottenham Court Road - is famous for its association with writers of the thirties, but in fact the area has played host to such diverse writers over the decades as Thomas Paine, Virginia Woolf, Aleister Crowley, George Orwell and Ian McEwan as well as leading literary soaks including Paul Verlaine, Dylan Thomas and Julian MacLaren-Ross.

  1. Thank you very much for the mention!

    What was a little experiment turned out to be a big success - we were amazed to sell out a book reading on a Saturday night!

    Pictures and videos from the night are now available online: http://localhost/nlrg/bookstock_home.php

    Any writers who'd be interested in reading to an audience of avid readers in future please do get in touch.

    Thanks - Paul
