2 Willow Road Late: It's a Small World - from the Flea Circus to the Model Village
In this illustrated talk, Simon Garfield, bestselling author of Just My Type and On the Map, will explore our peculiar fascination with making things small, and what small things tell us about the world at large.
- Booking essential
We live in a vast and uncertain world, and controlling just a tiny, scaled-down part of it restores our sense of order and worth. In his investigation of our obsessive attempt to bring things down to size in order to better understand them, Simon will reveal the secret histories of tiny Eiffel Towers, the truth about the flea circus, a doll’s house made for a Queen, eerie tableaux of crime scenes, miniature food, model villages and railways, and more.
