Raynes Park Festival are hosting a virtual book club with Dr Russell Rook talking to acclaimed author Tim Finch about his second novel ‘Peace Talks’.
Date: Friday 16th May at 8pm
Booking: Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place
Price: Free (suggested donation to a local charity)
‘Peace Talks’ tells the story of Edvard Behrens, a senior diplomat highly regarded for his work on international peace negotiations. Honest, honourable, tragic, witty, wise, it’s an unforgettable novel of love, loss, and the human longing for peace. It maps the darkest and most tender territories of the human heart.
Tim Finch is a leading campaigner and writer on refugee and migrant issues. He formerly worked as a director for the Refugee Council and has founded two charities, including Sponsor Refugees. As well as working as a senior political journalist at the BBC, he has broadcast frequently on Channel 4, Al Jazeera and CNN.
Tim’s first novel – ‘The House of Journalists’ – was published to great acclaim in 2013 with the New York Times praising it as “evocative and clever”.
The session will be run online with Zoom, which means people can be put into groups. So if you want to join with your regular book club to discuss this can be arranged! Alternatively, you are very welcome to attend on your own.
