The Londonist Literary List appears every Tuesday. If you’d like to bring an event to our attention, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There's not a whole lot going on this week in the way of live literary events, but there are more quality releases than we've seen in months. Additionally, we can say with confidence that there are some great events coming up in the near future. Ahh, things are looking up in the lives of us literary Londoners...
