The Londonist Literary List appears every Tuesday. If you’d like to bring an event to our attention, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your New Year's Resolution is to read more, then you're in luck this week, as the publishing industry returns with a vengeance. They must be rolling out the new releases before they worry about anything else, though, because it doesn't look like they've gotten around to scheduling any events...
Events Around London:
We've got nothing to report here, except for that the Whitbread Prizes will be announced tomorrow (the 4th) at a ceremony that you are not allowed to attend. Things will look up next week, we promise.
