Event description

Description

To celebrate this year's Cityread London come and hear all about Elizabethan Islington. A talk that looks at the development of islington during Elizabethan times with particular mention of the buildings that were here including religious establishments, theatres, inns and life in the Elizabethan period.

Cityread London is an annual celebration of literature that aims to bring reading to life for the whole capital. Each April, Cityread asks London’s citizens, workers and visitors to pick up a book – the same book – and read it together. Taking the chosen novel as a starting point, a month-long programme of book groups, film screenings and other events takes place across all 33 London boroughs in libraries, bookshops, museums and other venues.

Our 2017 book is Prophecy by S. J. Parris, a gripping Elizabethan spy thriller set in London 1583.
