Left Book Club – Big Capital with Anna Minton

12 September @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join the Left Book Club and Anna Minton for an open discussion on London’s housing crisis. The conversation will be based on Anna’s book, Big Capital: Who is London for?

What happens when housing is used for profit and no longer considered a social good? How does big capital shape London and reconfigure the rest of the UK today? What can we do to change this?

We will explore these questions and debate how London can be reclaimed for the many, not the few.

Anna Minton is an award-winning writer, journalist and Reader in Architecture at UEL. She has written two books, Ground Control in 2009 and Big Capital in 2017.

The Left Book Club is a subscription book club for everyone interested in left politics. Relaunched along the lines of Victor Gollancz’s ground-breaking organisation active in the 1930s, the LBC seeks to popularise ideas from the left across the UK and abroad.
