Book Slam x Penguin Live presents “Post-Truth”

Book Slam x Penguin Live presents “Post-Truth”

Description

Book Slam’s back at iconic boxing venue York Hall to be joined by a big-hitting line-up from across the political and cultural spectrum.

Book Slam emerges in the company of our good friends at Penguin punch drunk and tardy from the car crash of last year for our first event of 2018.

Guests include former Deputy Prime Minister NICK CLEGG who will tell us “How To Stop Brexit”; one of the UK’s most astute political commentators, MATTHEW D’ANCONA, to introduce us to “Post-Truth”; and acclaimed historian and journalist, MISHA GLENNY, author of “McMafia”, “Dark Market” and “Nemesis”. And to lift our spirits? Poetry from the utterly brilliant DEANNA RODGER, and sublime music from NATHAN BALL (think Van Morrison meets Bon Iver in Padstow). Laughs are courtesy of double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee ANDREW MAXWELL, flush with victory on “Celebrity Mastermind”, and our host, old pal and self-proclaimed knucklehead, FELICITY WARD. There’ll be food available from the excellent CULT and books on sale thanks to LIBRERIA. Be there.
