About this event

Iain Sinclair presents The Last London – the final chapter in his life-long odyssey (£10)

Iain Sinclair presents ‘The Last London’, the last book of his epic project documenting the peculiar magic of the river-city that has absorbed and obsessed him for most of his adult life.  A memoir, a critique and a love letter, in The Last London, Sinclair strikes out on a series of solitary walks and collaborative expeditions to make a final reckoning with a capital stretched beyond recognition. Come and be among the first to hear this ‘modern-day William Blake’ present his latest book. With a Q & A session and book signing.   

Book each event separately or book two or more together to get a 15% discount on the total price. Please go to each separate event listing to book your tickets, and the discount will be applied at checkout. 

About Watermans With Words

We’ve teamed up with North London’s ArchWay With Words Book Festival to bring you our very own mini book fest, themed around London and its river. In an evening of captivating speakers and new writing, Iain Sinclair and Caitlin Davies present their latest books, Ian Rawes plays vintage recordings of life on the Thames, and storyteller Griot Chinyere Nwaubani presents a new watery tale inspired by the river. You can also get a glimpse of London's playwrighting talent as the MA writers from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama present new works inspired by the Thames both in the Theatre and popping up all around Watermans.

Watermans With Words is delighted to be working in partnership with The Kew and Sheen Bookshops who be selling signed copies of the books. hewsonbooks.co.uk
