Get thee to Peckham this week, where the good citizens are organising the inaugural Peckham Literary Festival. Apparently Dell Boy moved out a number of years ago….

It is billed as ‘2 shops, 4 days, 8 events,’ although Londonist counted 5 days, 3-4 venues and rather more than 8 events. It is seemingly part of the growing I Love Peckham movement – we have to hand it to them down there in the deep south…they are awfully dedicated and determined. To the extent that even Londonist’s most hardened northerner is planning to take in an event or two this week.

We particularly like the look of the ‘steaming’ debate on Great Londoners, which is to follow a reading/signing by James Hamilton, author of London Lights…but there really is something for everyone, and nearly all of the events are FREE. Which can’t be bad.

So we’ll see you there then.
