8pm, 11th April – Map of a Nation: A Biography of the Ordnance Survey by Rachel Hewitt

“The virtue of maps, they show what can be done with limited space, they foresee that everything can happen therein.”
― Jose Saramago

In her “lively and informative narrative, Hewitt highlights the Ordnance project’s legion of draughtsmen, surveyors, dreamers and eccentrics, and the disagreements that flared among them.”
