In an age when letter writing is dying out but our lives have never been more documented in blogs, Instagram and Facebook posts Travis Elborough (editor of the acclaimed Our History of the 20th Century: As Told in Diaries, Journals and Letters) and Margaret Willes (author of The Curious World of Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn) explore how diaries have illuminated London’s history and discuss what the social historians of the future might use to unravel life in our city in the early twenty-first century.Buy tickets
