    Hello there,

    I was just wondering if this group is private or open to anyone interested in literary London?

      Hello Jimmy!

      Thanks for your message. Yes, the group is public and open to anyone with an interest in Literary London. As it’s a reading group, however, we encourage attendants to read the materials (available on the blog) in advance of the session — but otherwise there are no stipulations or requirements. So please do spread the word.

      We hope to see you there!

      Best Wishes,
