One for your diary – the 2nd Modernist Literary Event in London, which takes place in September.

Specifically, the date is 14th September 2019 and the location is the Cockpit Theatre, Gateforth Street, Marylebone, London NW8.

This is the follow-up to the first sold out London Modernist Literary Event back in 2015, this time featuring six authors who have had success over the last five decades. Those are:

Richard Barnes
Author of books on The Who but more importantly to us wrote and compiled the classic Mods which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

Paul ‘Smiler’ Anderson
Smiler will be discussing his latest books, Mod Art and The Pocket Guide to Mod as well as forthcoming projects such as Suedehead.

Claire Mahoney
Writer, blogger and author of Welsh Mod, a high-quality photographic book featuring Mods from the 1960s to the present day, from across the country.

Eddie Piller and Steve Rowland
DJ and Acid Jazz main man Eddie Piller has teamed up with designer Steve Rowland to produce Modzines, a collection of mod revival fanzines from the late 1970s and early 80s to the present day.

Rick Buckler
Rick may not be a mod per se, but as the drummer in The Jam, he indirectly influenced many young kids to take up ‘the look’. Rick’s book That’s Entertainment is a bonafide best seller and we’ll discuss what impact it had and of course, talk about the glory days of being in The Woking Wonders.

Terry has written many books about Mod, the 60s and some of the biggest artists of the era, but at this event, Terry will discuss in his own imitable way, his forthcoming autobiography Bermondsey or Bust, due out in

Each author will be interviewed in a Q&A style over 30 – 40 minutes and as ever, we give the audience a chance to ask their questions towards the end of the session.

Tickets are £20 in advance and can be bought at the Cockpit website.
