Henry James in London Town


IAS Seminar Room 20, South Wing | Wilkins Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Henry James, born in New York in 1843, died in Chelsea 100 years ago. He was a great London writer, and many of his novels and tales are set here – but he never wrote a book about London. This illustrated session will follow James on some of his excursions – near Trafalgar Square, on the river, through the City with its Wren churches – and will try to call up the ghost of this book that might have been.
