BookNight with Dan O’Brien

For our members’ BookNight in November we are delighted to welcome the acclaimed playwright, poet, and librettist Dan O’Brien. He will give a reading from his book of poems War Reporter, as well as from his critically acclaimed play The Body of an American, based on the poems.

War Reporter is focused on photojournalist Paul Watson, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1993 photograph of a dead American being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu. Deriving from correspondence between poet and photojournalist and their eventual meeting, the collection of poems bears unsparing witness to the incalculable damage inflicted by contemporary warfare.

BookNight with Robert McCrum

After four nights featuring Afghanistan, Bosnia, phone-hacking and Iraq – we’re going to shift into a more literary gear to welcome editor and writer Robert McCrum. Robert is reaching the half-way mark in compiling a vast list of, and guide to, the hundred greatest novels of all time – week by week, one year in, one to go. The books “choose themselves”, says Robert, but how fascinating it will be to hear how he chooses novels that choose themselves; what gets left out and how the public reacts.
