Writing the Cold War

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£12

The works of John le Carré

A National Archives talk and film screening

The novels of John le Carré have always sought to represent a seamier side to the world of espionage and the supposedly ‘glamorous’ life of a spy.

Dr Sam Goodman explores what le Carré’s novels say about Britain and Britishness in a time of declining international authority, shifting global politics, and the shadow of the Cold War.

The talk is followed by a free screening of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011).

The café remains open to the public when there are evening events taking place, serving a range of speciality coffees and teas, cakes, pastries, snacks, sandwiches, beer and wine.

Tickets £12.00 / concessions

The National Archives are at Bessant Drive, Kew, Richmond, Surrey TW9 4DU.

District line and Overground stations: Kew Gardens.
