2022 Issues

Spring 2022
Our first issue of the year celebrates the importance of the Library in writing and research. We speak to writer and long-time Library member Travis Elborough and Ex-Green Party leader Natalie Bennett. Travis, whose impressive and eclectic range of titles takes inspiration from our collection, has been a member of the Library for two decades. The voracious reader Natalie Bennett combines a hectic life in the House of Lords with a deep interest in history, ecology, and feminism. We celebrate new writing from the alums of the Library’s Emerging Writers Programme and catch up with roving journalist Pádraig Belton, the self-proclaimed collector of the Library's 'hidden desks.'
