Daunt Books Festival 2024

Emily’s Walking Book Club

The L-Shaped Room

Friday 15th March 2024
10:00am – 11:30am

Daunt Books Marylebone

Tickets £8.00


It wouldn’t be the Daunt Books Festival without Emily’s Walking Book Club. Please join writer, journalist and broadcaster Emily Rhodes on a stroll around Regent’s Park and a discussion of Lynne Reid-Banks’ classic novel The L-Shaped Room.

Jane Graham – 27, unmarried, pregnant and kicked-out-of-home – retreats to a dingy boarding house in West London. In this collection of misfits and outsiders, she discovers friendship, love and happiness; vitally, she finds that that self-respect is always worth fighting for. N.B. This was written in 1960 and contains offensive language that reflects the attitudes of the time.

Emily Rhodes is a writer and has been running the hugely popular Walking Book Club for over decade. Her features and reviews have appeared in publications including the Financial Times, Spectator, Guardian, 1843, the TLS and Country Life.

Please meet at Daunt Books Marylebone for 10am where we will be setting off for Regent’s Park. Please ensure you’ve read the book.


Ticket price includes L-shaped biscuits kindly donated from La Fromagerie
