Description

Acclaimed author Henry Hemmings will talk about his new book— a new biography of Maxwell Knight, the original and legendary ‘M’ of MI5.

Henry Hemming has written four non-fiction books – Together (John Murray, 2011), In Search of the English Eccentric (John Murray, 2008), Misadventure in the Middle East (Nicholas Brealey, 2007) and a monograph on a Saudi artist Abdulnasser Gharem (Edge of Arabia, 2011). Henry's journalism has been published in The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Economist, FT Magazine and The Washington Post among others.

When not writing, Henry gives talks and interviews, and has done so in all sorts of places, from BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme to NBC’s Today Show, as well as workshops and lectures for schools, festivals and companies including RDF Media, the RSA, the Big Society Network, The Frontline Club, The School of Life, British Naturism, Port Eliot Literary Festival and Canvas8, where he is a ‘Thought Leader’.
