Book Slam is London’s first and biggest literary club night where high profile authors share the stage with new music talent and performance poets

Angela programmed monthly events for almost 10 years, bringing in names such as Adele (before she had a record contract!), Kate Tempest, Luke Wright, Zadie Smith, Simon Armitage, Irvine Welsh, David Nicholls, Gilles Peterson and many others

The events sold out to audiences of 300-500 each month and generated significant books sales

In 2011 we launched a printed book series featuring newly-commissioned stories and exclusive interviews by Book Slam 'alumni' including William Boyd, Irvine Welsh, Patrick Ness, Jon Ronson, Simon Armitage, Kate Tempest, Tim Key, Mark Watson, Marina Lewycka, Will Self, Jonathan Lethem, Chuck Palahniuk, Sheila Heti, Amy Tan and Matt Haig  

Book Slam continues to flourish with founder Patrick Neate and event supremo Elliott Jack at the helm
