SOLD OUT Brian Sewell in conversation with John Bird: Tramping Today – Marking the 110th Anniversary of George Orwell’s Birth

Wednesday 9th October 2013 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT Frequently - to the point of cliché in fact - described as Britain's most famous and controversial art critic, Brian Sewell is so much more; a fearlessly opinionated journalist, scandalously honest memoirist, reluctant TV presenter and self-described gypsy scholar. His waspish wit and uncompromising views have made him something of an icon (though he would surely reject the term), and have been shared with the public via his Orwell Prize-winning essays, his Evening Standard columns and, most recently, his two-volume memoirs, Outsider. Tonight he is joined by Big Issue founder and author of The Necessity of Poverty John Bird to discuss tramping and to reflect on homelessness and attitudes to it since Orwell's seminal Down and Out in Paris and London, in an event that marks the 110th anniversary of his birth.

In conjunction with Quartet Books and the Orwell Prize
