Below is an archive list of some past events in which I have been involved. Details of forthcoming events to be announced soon.
HAY Festival, Arequipa, Peru
I will be appearing in two events at the Hay Festival in Arequipa, Peru--a conversation with Carolina Robino about my biography of Hernando Colón and his project to build the greatest library of all time, The Catalogue of Shipwrecked Books/El Memorial de los Libros Naufragados, and a roundtable with Pola Oloixarac, Melba Escobar and Xavi Áyen on 'Books as Objects of Desire'. Come join us!
Book Reading and Signing, Stanfords Books and Maps London
To celebrate the Ides of March in this Shakespeare anniversary year, I'll be telling the story of how Julius Caesar started a riot in Uganda in the middle of the twentieth century, as well as reading other stories from the book and signing copies.
For All Time - Shakepeare's Universality at the Stratford Literary Festival
I'll be talking to the critic and novelist Gabriel Josipovici about the universal appeal of Shakespeare, in a panel chaired by Benet Brandreth, RSC voice coach and author of a recent work of historical fiction based on Shakespeare's life.
