Join fellow enthusiasts and expert literary facilitators to discuss the classics under the canopy of the park’s London Plane trees. Stop by the Reading Room and get your free book for the discussion, available while supply lasts.

This week's book is Stories and Poems by Rudyard Kipling.

Simon Winchester, author of The Perfectionists: How Precision Engineers Created the Modern World, will lead a wide ranging discussion on Rudyard Kipling and his relevance (or otherwise) today, with a concentration on the following two stories: “The Man Who Would Be King” (pp 57-87) and “Baa Baa, Black Sheep” (pp 90-113); and one poem, “We and They” (p 502).

Produced in partnership with Oxford University Press.
