About this Event

About Reading Room:

This is a playful and provocative collection of 365 extracts sourced from the British Library's collections. Selected to challenge and inform the reader, each excerpt is accompanied by the unique shelfmark number of the source publication. Encompassing a wide range of great works in literature, poetry, essays and letters, historical and scientific treatises, and including beloved and popular authors as well as controversial writers, each extract will encourage enquiry and stimulate the imagination. Beautifully designed and illustrated with the Library's collections, with one extract for every day of the year, this book can be read as a thought to start the day or can be dipped into for inspiration at random.

About the Redstone Diary 2020:

The 32nd edition, edited by Julian Rothenstein and Ian Sansom celebrates Europe.

This year the Redstone Diary would like to invite you and your fellow travellers to explore the vast realms of this great continent, past and present, real and imagined, through images and texts.

Join us on a journey through time and space, from Goethe to Gothenburg, from Cocteau to Czechoslovakia, and from Bardot to Bologna.
