Cheltenham Literary Festival: Geoff Dyer – Cheltenham To California

October 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Part travel writer, part philosopher, diarist, novelist and voracious consumer of culture, the extraordinary work of Cheltenham-born Geoff Dyer defies characterisation, including books such as White Sands, Yoga For People Who Can’t Be Bothered To Do It and Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi. In this rare trip to his hometown, timed with the publication of his new book Broadsword Calling Danny Boy: On Where Eagles Dare, he joins us over brunch for witty, wide-ranging conversation across the physical and cultural landscape with The Times Deputy Editor Emma Tucker.

Brunch included in ticket price.
