Författarbesök: Rytmen av London

Rytmen av London – Anders Steinvall

UPPSALA | Lördag 8 dec kl 17.00

Rytmen av London – en resa genom mångfaldens geografi

London är ett kärt resmål för många svenskar, men också så mycket mer än det: det är en stad som går sin egen väg och mångfalden har blivit det normala. 

Välkommen till en afton med journalisten och författaren Anders Steinvall där han berättar om resan från Brixton till Brexit och tar oss genom vad som kallats Londons ”coola geografi”, ett urbant ideal starkt präglat av immigration.

Gratis!
