The City by the Book

A Barbican Library Lunchtime Talk

Libraries Week

Join City Guide Jill Finch for a talk on the City of London’s literary influence.

Charlotte Bronte loved it, Alexander Pope hated it. Known mainly as a place for money making and trade, the narrow alleyways of the City also gave birth to writers and poets. It either charmed or repelled its visitors and it has featured in and inspired books and poetry over the centuries. The City is awash with literary landmarks that might just surprise you.
