Indigenous London Book Party
Thu, 11 May 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM BST
Join us to celebrate the recent publication of historian Coll Thrush's new book Indigenous London: Native Travelers at the Heart of Empire, by Yale University Press. Indigenous London tells the story of Indigenous women, children, and men who travelled to the city, willingly or otherwise, from territories that became Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the United States, beginning in 1502 and continuing into the twenty-first century.
This informal gathering, sponsored by King's College London, will include an introduction from Dr. Simon Sleight and a short talk by Dr. Thrush, along with refreshments for all. Copies of Indigenous London will also be available for purchase and signing.
To get to the Department of History's event space, take one of the lifts in the lobby of KCL's Strand building. Exit to the right on floor seven and take the stairs to the eighth floor. The space is on the left.
