Out of the Shadows: Forgotten London Writers

A fascinating journey through the work of some of London's forgotten writers.

This unique evening takes you on a fascinating journey through the work of some of London’s forgotten writers. Bringing together four of London’s favourite contemporary writers, this panel discussion takes a closer look at some long-lost, but nonetheless captivating, novels from the capital’s past. All the books discussed are worth reading for what they tell us about the history of our city and maybe about our city right now - the buildings may have changed but are the people the same?

Speakers include:
Ken Worpole on Alexander Baron (King Dido, The Lowlife, Rosie Hogarth)
Iain Sinclair on Roland Camberton (Scamp, Rain on the Pavements)
Sarah Wise on John Henry Mackay (The Anarchists)
Andrew Whitehead on Gissing (The Nether World)

This event is organised in partnership with Newham Bookshop.
