York Literature Festival and St Peter’s School are pleased to announce that McMafia author, Misha Glenny, is coming to York on Monday 7 October to talk about one of today’s hottest topics – Geopolitics.
If you’ve ever wondered why odd things happen in the world, Misha Glenny will have already looked behind the teeth and smiles of the photo opportunity to explain what really lies beneath the grin. If you’re interested in learning about the Americas, Western and Eastern Europe, Southern Africa, Turkey, the Middle East or Chinese foreign policy, Misha will offer you an eye-opening talk that will be both surprising and illuminating.
“The investigative author recently became known to a wider audience thanks to the BBC Sunday night drama, McMafia, which dealt with the murky and complex underworld of corrupt geo-finance, money laundering and how apparently legal means are used for illegal purposes,’ said Festival Director Nick David, ‘so we’re very excited that Misha is coming to York to talk about another hot topic – Geopolitics.’
You can see Misha Glenny at Temple Hall, York St John University, Lord Mayor’s Walk,
7.30 – 9.30pm on Monday 7 October.
All events are bookable via the York Literature Festival website, www.yorkliteraturefestival.co.uk.
Tickets for Misha Glenny are also available from the York Theatre Royal Box Office, 01904 623568.
This is just one of a range of events taking place in September and October, brought together by York Explore, York Literature Festival and St Peter’s School. Actor David Suchet, better known as Poirot, will be at the Folk Hall, New Earswick on Thursday 10 October at 1pm to talk about his life in photography, whilst TV historian Dan Jones will be at Tempest Anderson Hall, Museum Gardens on 16 October at 7pm to review his book about the Crusades.
