Launch of Estuary: Out from London to the Sea

An immersive, intimate journey into the world of the Thames Estuary and the people who spend time there. Over many years Lichtenstein has travelled the length and breadth of this historic waterway in vessels ranging from hardy tugboats to sailing barges whilst gathering an extraordinary chorus of voices: mudlarkers and fishermen, radio pirates and champion racers, divers and oystercatchers. In this sparkling new book she captures these stories before they vanish from living memory, and merges them with personal experience of this place along with layers from different periods of history.
