Meeting Jim is about a journey back to the lifetime of Jim Haynes who established the very first paperback bookshop in Britain, co-founded the Traverse Theatre, was a catalyst for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, established the London Traverse Theatre Company, co-founded the newspaper I.T., the underground pop club U.F.O., and the London Arts Lab. After being influenced by Gary Davis, he printed World Passports and thousands of people travelled on them. In his Paris atelier, he created a salon tradition with open dinners every Sunday evening for some 40 years and over 130,000 guests to date – and counting… Witnessing this tradition, The Guardian calls him ‘the founder of the social network’. At the age of 83, he keeps introducing people to each other because he thinks that the more people meet each other, the better the world is.
