BOOK EVENT/TALK
‘King’s Cross: a sense of place’

with Angela Inglis
6:30pm, Saturday 8th September 2012
Housmans, Peace House, 5 Caledonian Road, London N1 9DX
Entry: £3, redeemable against any purchase from Housmans

Join photographer Angela Inglis for a discussion of her book, ‘King’s Cross: a sense of place’, examining the area’s ever-changing landscape.

For more than 25 years, photographer Angela Inglis has been documenting the area around King’s Cross. In ‘King’s Cross: A Sense of Place’, she focuses on the stories behind the photographs to celebrate the survival and rebirth of a small corner of historic London and the vision and tireless campaigning of people who have lived, worked and believed in the area. It is a collaborative history told through narrative and photographs, with contributions from many of the key campaigners.

‘What is the city but the people?’ Shakespeare wrote in his play Coriolanus. This book shows clearly how, without the efforts of the people, the character of these areas of King’s Cross, along with many of the buildings, would have been destroyed forever.

This event is part of the London’s Burning series at Housmans.
