Stories from the South Crongton Estate

Wednesday 12 October 2pm-3.15pm

Alex Wheatle will talk about his latest books Liccle Bit and Crongton Knights. Crongton
Knights is another funny and moving story from the South Crongton council estate in inner
city London. Although life is testing, the lessons learned the hard way are the ones you’ll never
forget. Liccle Bit is about family and friends and how a teenage boy gets caught up in gang
culture. Apart from writing, Alex visits various institutions and runs creative writing classes
and gives talks. He has also narrated an audio guide to the streets of Brixton and his debut
novel, Brixton Rock, was adapted for the stage and performed at the Young Vic.
