Hi all -
This doesn't happen in SE1 (sorry) but as I'm a long-time SE1 resident I thought I'd post news of this charity fundraiser here. If you're interested in Canadian literature - or know someone who is! - please pass on details of this April 21st event.

Thomas Chandler Haliburton
Network Canada and the European Chapter of the University of King's College Alumni Association host this annual event in homage to Thomas Chandler Haliburton, who wrote the Victorian era classic The Clockmaker: the Sayings and Doings of Sam Slick from Slicksville. Widely feted on both side of the Atlantic, Haliburton was a Canadian literary lion with distinct London ties.
