Black Book Swap Event

I ventured up to the London borough of Islington yesterday, to attend this book event. It was well worth the trek! I swapped two books (both on my very long bucket list of books) as well as buying another at a very reasonable price!

RESULT!

The place was packed with readers and prospective writers, mingling with published authors such as Sophia Acheampong. Unfortunatly I had to leave half way through but managed to catch most of the speakers including Alex Wheatle and Eva G Headley, who both spoke positively about their own experiences as writers and the option of self publishing.
Hope there's another Black Book Swap event planned however they will definately need a bigger venue!

Thanks to the organisers for an enjoyable afternoon!
