Ben Okri: Prayer for the Living

Sorry, this event has sold out

Prayer for the Living, the new collection from the Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri, brings together stories from different worlds that blur the lines between illusion and reality. He discusses the role of fiction in these difficult times.

Ben Okri was born in Minna, Nigeria. His childhood was divided between Nigeria, where he saw first-hand the consequences of war, and London. His novel The Freedom Artist was published by Head of Zeus in 2019.

Event chaired by Steven Gale.

Join us before the event on The Old High Street where Ben Okri will be launching the Book Festival and switching the Creative Quarter Christmas lights on at 5.30pm.
