Lifted from but of interest to all residents

Cityread London is an annual celebration of literature that brings reading to life for the whole capital in a massive book group. Each spring, Cityread invites London’s citizens, workers and visitors to pick up a book – the same book – and read it together. Taking the chosen novel as a starting point, a month-long programme of book groups, author talks, workshops and other events takes place across London’s libraries, bookshops, museums and other venues.

This year’s book is ‘The Muse’ by Jessie Burton, acclaimed author of ‘The Miniaturist’. Come along to your City of London library and borrow a copy of the book, or sign up for one of the themed events.
