THE READING AGENCY LECTURE 2014: RUSSELL BRAND
Russell Brand to give The Reading Agency Lecture
Russell Brand will deliver The Reading Agency Lecture on 25 November 2014, 7.00-8.00pm.
The Reading Agency Lecture will take place in The Logan Hall at the Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL
You can buy tickets for the lecture from Eventbrite.
Tickets are priced at £20 and £10 for concessions (under 24s).
The lecture was initiated by The Reading Agency in 2012. It aims to provide a platform for leading writers and thinkers to share original, challenging ideas about the future of reading in the UK.
Russell Brand will deliver ‘a manifesto on reading’ which will be in part personal, sharing his own experience of books and reading while growing up in the UK; and it will be in part as a public figure, sharing his views on the status of reading and storytelling in our national culture and why reading is important for young people – especially boys – in the UK today.
Russell Brand says:
“Writing is the most intimate medium. Right there in the brain, in the swamp of fear and desire. I like splashing about in there, stirring up sediment, doing the breaststroke. In this lecture I will try and drag this metaphor out for an hour.”
