The Best Book Events in the City

Out of a mixture of gratitude and admiration, we turn our shop, twice a week or so, into a miniature auditorium in which authors talk about and read from their work, meet their readers, and engage in lively debate about the burning topics of the day. Find out here who’s scheduled to appear.

The London Review Bookshop is also available for hire; email or call (020) 7269 9030 for more information.
