Ben Okri - Wild

Tuesday 8th May 2012 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

This evening, Man Booker Prize winning author Ben Okri joins us to discuss Wild, his first new book of poetry in a decade. The collection observes the chaos, tenderness and fragility that characterise our daily existence, and Wild cover explores the hidden depths into which nature can often lead us. The acclaimed Nigerian author, whose words of subtle beauty have astounded in novels such as The Famished Road will also look at the modernist approaches to love and war, personal and political affliction and 'dream logic' which have come to define his writing.

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, Charing Cross Road.
Tickets: Free, but need to be reserved by adding the required number to the basket below or by emailing events@foyles.co.uk. No physical tickets will be issued: the order confirmation you will receive after adding ticket/s to your basket is your proof of reservation.
