Book swapping in London, News, Other book swaps

Join us for the FreedBook London-wide release book crawl on 24 November!

Got a spare hour or two on Saturday, 24 November? Books for London is teaming up with the London-based CollectConnect group of artists to release copies of their newly published FreedBook across the Books for London network.

What is FreedBook?

FreedBook is a 72 page softback book, containing 68 one-page stories from 50+ artists. There were 100 copies printed in the First Edition. Each book is individually numbered, and each is signed by at least one of the artists.

We’re going to be roving across London visiting as many book swaps in train stations as we can. It will be the first time the Books for London network has really been linked up in a big way.

Here’s the intended schedule. We’ll try and stick to it as much as we can, but follow our hashtag on twitter for more details on the day: #FreedBookcrawl

One thought on “Join us for the FreedBook London-wide release book crawl on 24 November!

  1. Nasty wet day for it but the crowd rolled up to leave the first book and, fortuitously, so did a donor with a bag of books including a novel in Portuguese and many about either Japan or computer programming and sometimes both.
    We waved the Freed Book pilgrims off cheerily and hope they enjoy their travels
