Come along to Croydon Literary Festival on Saturday 27th October at 3pm to hear John Grindrod discuss his new book How To Love Brutalism. The talk will be followed by a book signing.

How To Love Brutalism explains what it is about brutalist buildings that elicits such strong feelings of love or hate. You will understand the true power of concrete and of mammoth-sized buildings, but also some of the more subtle aspects of brutalist buildings that you may not have known or considered. Illustrated with striking drawings by The Brutal Artist, the book is divided up into a series of mini essays that explains the brutalist world from a human aspect, as well as an architectural, historical and even pop cultural angle.

Croydon Literary Festival is a literary festival entirely run by volunteers, now in its second year. Taking place on Saturday 27th October, events will be hosted across three venues.
