Check out our gallery for a mini-synopsis of the novels and start unearthing those dog-eared book tokens.
See now: St Pancras
The beautiful hall of St Pancras is more than just a buzzing, international travel hub: it's also a spectacular exhibition space. On Thursday 18, a new piece of public art is being unveiled to the public - Cloud: Meteoros, designed by British-born artist Lucy Orta and her husband Jorge, will be suspended above the crowds on the Grand Terrace. This dreamy artwork is one of a series of sculptures that will be erected in order to replace the space left by the Olympic rings. The celestial art has been installed permanently, but don't wait till you're running to make the 17.45 to Cambridge to snatch a glimpse: pop along and enjoy it properly this weekend.
