Left Bank Art, Passion and the Rebirth of Paris, 1940-1950 with Agnes Poirier

Thursday, November 8th | Left Bank Art, Passion and the Rebirth of Paris, 1940-1950 with Agnès Poirier 

Hosted in partnership with The London Library

Agnès Poirier paints a captivating portrait of those who lived, loved, fought, played and flourished in Paris between 1940 and 1950 and whose intellectual and artistic output still influences us today. The Bloomsbury Institute is proud to host an evening with Agnès Poirier inside The London Library's beautiful Reading Room, a space normally open to members only. Hurry - places won't last. 

“Briskly plotted, gossip-fuelled, character-driven cultural history ... Poirier's hugely enjoyable, quick-witted and richly anecdotal book is magnifique'” –  The Times

“A tour de force … weaves together so many people, ideas, trends, occurrences, and above all Parisian places, into a tapestry of fascinations – a distillation of the essence of an amazing time … the best of its kind I have ever read” –  A.C. Grayling,

“A brilliant recapturing of a fascinating era. Artistic and intellectual Paris comes vividly and memorably alive in these pages. A tremendous achievement” –  William Boyd

Tickets £10/£15. Book your place via The London Library >>

The revival of Broadway theatre with Chris Jones and Matt Wolf
Tuesday, November 27 | The revival of Broadway theatre with Chris Jones and Matt Wolf
 
Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we explore the rebirth of Broadway musicals and theatre over the past twenty-five years from 'Angels in America’ to ‘Hamilton’
Join us as the Chicago Tribune's chief theatre critic, Chris Jones, is in conversation with Matt Wolf, theatre critic of The International New York Times in London, on how theatre thrived by finally figuring out how to embrace the bold statement and insert itself into the national conversation for one night only. Chris and Matt will debate how key productions staged since the early 1990s have swept through Broadway but also London's West End and have much to say about the state of attitudes in society and culture on both sides of the pond then and now.
