Free Talk: The Londoners - The Days and Nights of London Now

Author Craig Taylor, has a new book coming out called
The Londoners - The Days and Nights of London Now, As Told by Those Who Love It, Hate It, Live It, Left It and Long for It (top title & book cover). On Saturday 19th November at Chipping Barnet Library at 2.30pm he's giving a free talk on his research & writing of the book. He interviewed 80 Londoners over 5 years including the female voice of the Tube, Emma Clarke, and Craig Clark, London Underground's lost property office clerk.

He also interviews people who have come to London for the first time about their experience of negotiating London & their first trips on the Tube.

Rachel Lichtenstein said "In this extraordinary portrait of London, told through the diverse voices of its people, Craig Taylor has taken the pulse of the city.  Hope, despair, loathing, love: this passionate city invites passionate responses and 'Londoners' is its song".

Sounds like a fascinating talk for all interested in London & not just the London Underground. 

Please phone Chipping Barnet Library on 020 8359 4040 or email ruth.newman@barnet.gov.uk to book your free place.  Nearest Tube - High Barnet
