Cityread is when the whole of London is asked to come together and read the same book

Best-selling author S.J. Parris is coming to Hall Place as part of the Cityread London programme.

Cityread London is a celebration of the power of reading and takes place every April across all London boroughs.

London’s residents, workers and visitors are asked to pick up a book – the same book – and read it together.

Taking the chosen book as a starting point, a month-long programme of book groups, film screenings and other events takes place in libraries, bookshops, museums and other venues across the capital.

S.J. will be talking about her passion for history and how she writes and researches her murder mystery books.

Prophecy, set in Tudor London, is the Cityread London book for 2017.

Discounted copies of the book will be on sale for the author to sign.

The event is on April 27 from 2.30pm – 4.00pm at Hall Place.

Tickets are free but visitors need to book, by visiting s-j-parris-library-event-at-hall-place.eventbrite.co.uk

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
