NOW WITH ADDED LIVE! To celebrate the launch of Brixton Review of Books' autumn issue, BRB editor Catherine Taylor brings three of this issue's contributors to the stage to hear what you've been reading and make recommendations.

Join us Friday 15 October, 8-9pm
Your confirmation email is your ticket to the event, and includes a glass of wine at the launch party taking place after the panel.
