The Londonist Literary List appears every Tuesday. If you’d like to bring an event to our attention, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
While this week is a bit slow where literary events are concerned, there's a new series coming up that we think is just what London needs more of. A whole slew of local lit-lovers are joining forces to present Through the Glass Darkly. The first reading takes place on April 13th. We'll have more details in a couple of weeks, naturally, but we're so excited about it that we wanted to give readers a bit of advance notice.
Looking at the current week, though, it looks like if you don't make it to something by tomorrow, you're not going to make it to anything — because there's nothing going on Thursday through the weekend. That said, the three events below all look to be exceptional...
Events Around London:
Tonight, the "Stop the Clock" series continues at South Bank Centre with Douwe Draaisma, Ekow Eshun and Hilary Mantel discussing how memory influences their work. 7:45pm. £8.50.
