About the Event

Join Inside Croydon for an evening with author John Grindrod, where he will talk about his acclaimed new book, Iconicon.

From Thatcher to Brexit, Iconicon is a history of the country through some pretty good buildings and a vast number of awful ones.

‘Be prepared for something darker, much more illuminating and rather sad,’ The Guardian’s reviewer, Hugh Pearman, said of Iconicon.

‘Chirpy though Grindrod’s prose style is, replete with pop references and hip asides, what he chronicles is the accelerating decline of the UK since 1980 as expressed through what we build.’

The talk will begin at 7.30pm and last about one hour, including a chance to ask John about his favourite, and least favourite, buildings.

There will also be an opportunity to purchase copies of the book, signed by the author, as well as Grindrod’s previous books, Concretopia and Outskirts.

Full details, including the venue, are available when you book your tickets.
