Host: London Review Bookshop
Location: London Review Bookshop, 14 Bury Place, London WC1A 2JL
Speaker: Simon Garfield
Simon Garfield is the author of 13 highly acclaimed non-fiction books, on subjects as varied as stamp-collecting, wrestling, the mini motor car and the colour mauve. Of his latest book On the Map (Profile Books) he writes ‘There will be manuscripts, sea charts, atlases, screen grabs and phone apps … The range will be extensive: poverty and wealth maps, film maps and treasure maps, maps with a penchant for octopuses, maps of Africa, Antarctica and places that never were. Some of the maps will explain the shape of the world, while others will focus on a street or on the path of a plane as it flies to Casablanca.’ Simon Garfield will be at the shop to talk about the strange and wonderful world of cartography past, present and future.More Information
