The Londonist Literary List

The Londonist Literary List appears every Tuesday. If you’d like to bring an event to our attention, please email

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.

Also tonight, screenwriter Deborah Moggach demonstrates the process she carried out in adapting Pride and Prejudice to the screen. 7pm. Adam Street Club, 9 Adam Street. £5. SOLD OUT.

Tomorrow (the 22nd), University of East London professor Maggie Humm presents and discusses a number of unpublished photographs of the Bloomsbury writers (like Virginia Wool, pictured). 7pm. London Review Bookshop, 14 Bury Place. £6.
