An Evening with Marlon James

An Evening with Marlon James

Spend an unforgettable evening with bestselling author and Booker Prize winner Marlon James, to mark the 10th anniversary of the extraordinary modern classic, A Brief History of Seven Killings.

Jamaica, 1976. Seven gunmen storm Bob Marley’s house, machine guns blazing. The reggae superstar survives. The gunmen are never caught.

This evening will be a joyful celebration, reflecting on a novel that shook the literary world. An extra special guest will join Marlon in conversation live on-stage, as they revisit to the host of unforgettable characters who populate the story, from slum kids and drug lords to journalists and even the CIA.

Whether you have been a fan from the beginning, or are discovering this sweeping epic for the first time, this event is the perfect opportunity to step into the vibrant and mythic world that solidified Marlon James as one of the most prominent Caribbean writers of our time. With a unique opportunity to ask your own questions and pick up a signed copy of the exclusive 10th anniversary edition of A Brief History of Seven Killings, this is a one-of-a-kind evening not to be missed!
