This event has already taken place.
Host: Waterstones in Islington, London
Location: 11 Islington Green, London, N1 2XH
Speaker: Jon Day, Matthew Beaumont
In Cyclogeography, Jon Day, King's Lecturer, Booker Prize judge and former Cycle Courier, looks at how cycling brings a unique take on our relationship with the physical world. Like a two-wheeled Ian Sinclair, Day looks specifically at how cycling remaps London and at the historical and philosophical implications of understanding a city via the bike.
This is a wonderful opportunity to hear Jon talk on this most profuse of subjects- he is a lucid, witty and compelling speaker.
The book is so much more that the memoir of a courier, it is an elegantly written philosophical treatise, and in person Jon is just as engaging.
In conversation with UCL lecturer Matthew Beaumont, this looks to be an extremely enlightening evening.
Book ahead as we anticipate high demand.More Information
