UPDATE: The Book Stops Here has now stopped “here” – except when/if we ever start it up again, we’ll let you know.
The Book Stops Here is a literary party night held every second Thursday of the month, except when it’s not (and we’ll tell you). We used to be known as To Hell with the Lighthouse before we submitted to the pun.
You: You get three or four brilliant and short readings from some great authors that we really rate, for FREE! You just have to show up at 7.30pm, have a drink, and listen. You even get to talk in the breaks, and listen to Northern Soul and girl groups in a beautiful bar.
Us: We’ve been filmed for BBC2’s The Culture Show, mentioned in the Guardian, Londonist, The Times, and were called ‘the coolest crowd I’ve ever read to’ by Adam Thirlwell.
Our lovely friends from Hatchards provide books to sell on the night and our very attractive logo was designed by Sonja Kresowaty.
