Devizes Corn Exchange 8pm | £18
In this fascinating evening, John Simpson will describe some of the difficult and often dangerous situations he has faced as a veteran reporter, as well as some of the more light-hearted and amusing tales from his own travels.
With over 40 years experience in international journalism, John has dodged the bullets in Tiananmen Square, danced on top of the Berlin Wall, and was on hand for the revolutions in Czechoslovakia and Romania. He stood alongside Boris Yeltsin during the KGB coup which brought down the Soviet Union, and was the first Western journalist to penetrate the KGB headquarters in Moscow.
John will be happy to sign copies of his books after the event.
