Literary Footprints: Jerry White on Grub Street

Things to do, Talks and lectures

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Superb London historian Jerry White will be talking about Grub Street, notorious home of hacks, cheap publishers and general literary and poetical ne'er-do-wells until the early 19th century. Bohemian from before the term was known, it was an area of cheap, temporary lodgings, coffeehouses and prostitution - and isn't far from the library where the talk will be delivered.
