Throughout April, people all over the capital are being encouraged to read, share and discuss Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London as part of Cityread London.
The book tells the tale of Peter Grant, a probationer in the Metropolitan Police whose attention is brought to Inspector Nightingale – the last wizard in England. Peter becomes the first trainee wizard in 50 years, working to find nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames and digging up graves in Covent Garden. The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it falls on Peter to bring order out of chaos – or die trying.
Copies of the book will be available in libraries and reading groups will be discussing it in their regular meeting. Other events are planned throughout April.
