Meet the authors talk series

Join us for a programme of literary discussions from Friends of Imperial College. These literary festival style interviews are with authors of new, recently published or soon to be published books. Our guests all have one thing in one common - they work on or around, or have links to, Exhibition Road. During their slots they will talk about the inspiration behind their books and take questions from the audience.

The talks are organised by Friends of Imperial College.
