Event description

Description

LMA Book Group is a monthly reading group exploring a range of London writing, with a remit covering fiction and non-fiction from all periods in London history.

Our meetings last about an hour, and a display of relevant original documents from the archives will be available for viewing.



In August we are reading a contemporary historical novel London Lies Beneath by Stella Duffy.

Duffy is a prolific novelist and playwright who deftly works across genres. London Lies Beneath (2016) is her fourteenth novel, set in Edwardian Walworth, which explores the close family ties of the working class community that live in and around East Street. This vivid novel, which is based on real events, tells the story of three young boys who leave home to attend a scout camp but who are caught in a terrible tragedy, and the ripples this event creates within their families.
