Quaker Social Action and Jennifer Kavanagh are at St. Margaret’s House for a discussion about Kavanagh’s new book, Let Me Take You By The Hand, an x-ray of life on the streets of London today, told by the people who live and work on them.
Inspired by journalist and social advocate Henry Mayhew’s 1861 publication London Labour and the London Poor, an oral history of those living and working on the streets of Victorian London, Jennifer collected stories from today’s London to explore the changes and continuities from then to now.
