Join us for another Young Fabians Book Club where the Arts and Culture and Devolution and Local Government Networks will be joining together to discuss John Boughton’s non-fiction work: Municipal Dreams: The Rise and Fall of Social Housing.
Sign up to attend here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYpdeqgpj8qGNUVMQCmWQBFyDqhEWYjdI_R
Published in the tragic shadow of Grenfell, Municipal Dreams charts the history and political meaning of council housing in Britain, exploring its origins in the nineteenth century, rapid growth before and after the Second World War and finally the ideological causes of its neglect and decline.
During this time, it’s really important that we all try and support local independent businesses. In particular, independent bookshops. If possible, we would really encourage you to seek out local independent booksellers. Many are doing a fantastic job of running delivery services even with the limitations of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, the publisher is selling the book directly here for 30% off at the moment: https://www.versobooks.com/books/2998-municipal-dreams
