Black Book Swap: Saturday 17 November 2012


After the launch event in the spring, Black Book Swap is back! On Saturday 17 November we shall again be providing the opportunity to swap books, meet authors - new and established - to hear them describe their work and chat to them about what inspires them. I hope that you will love the programme that we have put together, the autumn 2012 authors are Andrea Stuart, Jenny Garrett, DD Armstrong, Noo Saro-Wiwa, Dorothy Koomson and Courttia Newland. Black Book Swap is London's only celebration of the black authors and their writing. Black Book Swap brings together the reading community with the writers of the books that we love to read.
