Event Details

Join us for an evening with Guardian journalist and bestselling author Jonathan Freedland.

Writing under the pseudonym Sam Bourne, Freedland’s political thrillers offer a world of corruption eerily close to our own. In his previous book, To Kill the President, America suffers under a nameless controversial president known for his deep-rooted misogyny and erratic relationships with other countries.

In To Kill the Truth, Freedland’s upcoming novel, evidence of history’s greatest crimes is being destroyed, from the Holocaust to the slave trade. Museums and libraries are burning, academics are found dead, and digital records are lost.

Freedland will be in conversation with Stephanie Merritt (who also writes thrillers, as SJ Parris) about fake news, truth and fiction in the Trump era.

Tickets are £20 or £30 including a copy of To Kill the Truth (RRP £14.99).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email guardianlive.events@theguardian.com
