Follow Henry Eliot, Creative Editor of Penguin Classics, on a tour through Bath’s illustrious literary history. Over the centuries, many writers have either made the city their home or immortalised it in their work, from Chaucer to Dickens and – most memorably – Jane Austen. Henry Eliot brings the city’s vibrant cultural history to life, with visions of Shakespeare taking a dip in the hot baths, Sheridan fighting duels and Mary Shelley composing Frankenstein in the Abbey Churchyard.
Join us for a walk around Bath and discover the richness of the city’s literary history. We will meet for coffee and cake in the Bookshop at 10am, and set out at 10.30am. After the walk we reconvene at the Bookshop for refreshments, and you can redeem your voucher against a copy of The Penguin Classics Book.
