Iain at “Hunt The London Author” At Hatchards

We have just heard that the event has been cancelled due to the low number of reservations.

 

From the Londonist:

“The people behind CurioCity, that elegant combination of magazine and map, are putting together just such a treasure hunt at Hatchards on Saturday. Ten Londoncentric authors — including Iain Sinclair, The Gentle Author, poet Patience Agbabi, placehacker Bradley Garrett, historian Catharine Arnold and UCL’s spatial analyst James Cheshire – will be hidden around the store. Solve the clues, find the writers, hear them read from their works and ask them questions. Even better: it’s free and you get a glass of wine to lubricate the little grey cells.”

A Literary London Treasure Hunt takes place from 6pm on 1 November at Hatchards, 187 Piccadilly. It’s free, but reserve your place by emailing events@hatchards.co.uk.

Details

 

2014 marks 150 years since the death of arguably England’s most significant poet of the natural world, John Clare, in an asylum in Northampton.

Talks and performances will accompany the showing, responding to the poet’s 80-mile walk, reimagined by the film, from an Essex asylum, back to his home village of Helpston, Cambridgeshire.

Hosted by Professor Simon Kövesi of the Department of English and Modern Languages.
