The Friends of Senate House Library Book Club

As part of the Library's latest exhibition, Radical Voices, join the Friends of Senate House Library to explore News from Nowhere, William Morris's classic work describing a utopian future where money, ‘wage slavery’ and marriage have been abolished.

Our discussion will be led by Dr Owen Holland, a Morris expert and lecturer at Jesus College, Oxford, and chaired by Dr Rowan Watson, formerly the Senior Curator at the National Art Library at the V&A.

Read more about News from Nowhere on the British Library website.
