TALK on Monday 22 February 2010

A tale of hot liquid, gossip and blurred identities. Come and join us for a caffeine-fuelled evening on 18th-century coffee houses in Hackney and the stories that were narrated there, including readings of unpublished extracts from the diary of Dudley Ryder, womanising student and coffee addict, and Hackney's answer to Samuel Pepys. Coffee provided!
