After a tremendous response at the first ever bookshop crawl curated in June 2016, The event is back with double the love! The fifteenth edition of Books & Brews : The Book Shop Crawl – Bangalore, is all geared up to take you on an expedition of a curated walk through Bangalore’s iconic bookshops.

This time around, there is an extra special line up of performances lined up for you at each book shop, so you can stretch your feet, relax, and enjoy yourselves between each book shop stop. Here’s your chance to meet musicians, artists, poets, authors, speakers and more at each stop during intimate sessions surrounded by your favourite books.

Expect insightful conversations with book shop owners while they take you on a journey from the time they started, to how they’ve survived – regardless of the advent of digital reading avenues – and the role of the book shop as an icon of preservation and sustenance of history, and the role of the reader as an active agent to enable this.

Join to explore some of the city’s oldest and most loved bookstores, listen to stories that bring pages alive, and make new friends – real or imaginary.
