Tim Battle, Librarian of Richmond Literary Lunches, writes:

Robin Ince is co-presenter of the award winning BBC Radio 4 show, The infinite Monkey Cage; has won the Time Out Outstanding Award in Comedy. What better way to understand ourselves than through the eyes of a comedian – those who professionally examine our quirks on stage daily? Praised for ‘I’m a Joke and so are you’ from Jo Brand ‘Moving, funny and interesting, Robin leads us on a fascinating journey’.

Tim Marshall, ‘Prisoners of Geography’, the phenomenal 140 weeks No.1 Sunday Times Best Seller, was Diplomatic Editor at Sky News, Andrew Neil writes ‘A fresh and original insight into the geopolitics behind today’s foreign policy challenges.’ The New York Times ‘A different way of looking at maps as guideposts to the often thorny relations between nations.’

This opportunity to meet, to hear two outstanding authors speak before a Question and Answer session, should not to be missed.
