Book Clubbing East London

Sunday 22nd November Das Mag are turning East London into the world's biggest book club for a day! The festival consists of ten intimate book clubs being held simultaneously in ten beautiful venues.

This event is great for people who like to impose their taste in literature on others (or why not make a first date really intense by asking your date to read a whole book in advance?)

We caught wind of this concept when studio resident The Dalstonist - always with their finger on the pulse - announced that after Antwerp, Berlin and Amsterdam - wacky literary magazine Das Mag is taking over East London.

This autumn East London will turn into the world's biggest book club one Sunday with ten intimate book clubs being held simultaneously in ten venues, including The Book Club, The Proud Archivist, KK Outlet. Unlike any old reading group the writers in question will be present, handing out drinks while quizzing the readers on the book and vice versa. People receive their book in the post exactly a month prior to the event, making it the only festival with homework to do in advance.

Das Mag book club afterparties are as infamous as the writers involved. Check out the line up and take your pick!
