Libraries at war: a walk through London’s print culture in the Second World War

decoration01 July 2014

This walk will carry you back through time to find out about the Second World War’s impact on London’s libraries. Participants are invited to spend a summer evening discovering how librarians, publishers and printers responded to conditions in London between 1939 and 1945. From Chancery Lane to the streets of Bloomsbury, Alice Ford-Smith (Bernard Quaritch Ltd) guides them  through a book-focussed account of the Second World War. The walk starts with a display of material with a wartime theme in the Maughan Library’s Weston Room.
Numbers are limited to 25 people, and pre-booking is essential.
