SOLD OUT! Marina Warner - Stranger Magic

Thursday 29th November 2012 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT Magic may be nothing more than an ancient superstition, but it still exercises a powerful fascination for us today. Internationally acclaimed cultural historian, critic and novelist Marina Warner has spent her career uncovering fascinating aspects of myth, fairytale, folklore and art and in Stranger Magic she explores 'The Arabian Nights', retelling its lesser-known stories and examining the impact of this Eastern text on Western readers. Tonight she shares her ground-breaking research and startling analysis and tells some wonderful stories - though we can't promise all 1,001.

Venue: the Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, 113 - 119 Charing Road, London WC2H 0EB
Tickets: SOLD OUT
