We are pleased to invite you to a special one off webinar to showcase Compass' new series of podcasts, called the Reading Room.

These member-exclusive podcasts will feature Compass staff interviewing authors about their books, with themes ranging from politics, society, culture and economics. In future, members will also get an exclusive discount on the featured books to keep them a step ahead of the curve.

To give you an idea of what's in store, we are hosting this special webinar and making it available to everyone.

This will feature Compass board member and MP Jon Cruddas, who will be discussing his new book A Century of Labour.

Britain’s first Labour government took office on 22 January 1924. Its centenary provides an opportunity to reassess the party's performance over the last 100 years, and with an election pending, the character and purpose of the modern party.

Why has Labour won so few elections since 1945 and changed too little?

Which personalities have divided the party and who has united it?

And if Labour wins again - how will they govern?

Jon will outline the scope of the book and a panel of thinkers, featuring Hannah O’Rourke from campaign lab, political theorist Marc Stears and Francesca Klug, human rights academic, will respond. As we approach the next election it will be a unique opportunity to assess not just Labour’s past, present and future but Labour’s relationship to other parties and forces.

So join us on Wednesday 17 January at 6:30pm for this special webinar with Compass board member, Jon Cruddas MP.
