Clinton is coming to Lambeth

Hillary Clinton will come to the Southbank Centre as part of this year’s London Literature Festival to talk about her new book, ‘What Happened’.

This year London Literature Festival opens with the 50th anniversary of Poetry International, and it has special guests include Tom Hanks, Philip Pullman, Rebecca Solnit, Annie Leibovitz and Karl Ove Knausgaard. Speakers will talk about their books to Londoners in the Southbank Centre and a live reading of Nelson Mandela’s memoirs will follow. But perhaps the most anticipated name of the festival is Hillary Clinton, who will talk about her new book ‘What Happened’, published this week. The book is an account of her experience running as the Democratic Party’s candidate in last year’s US Presidential election. Clinton will also be making an appearance at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on the same day (October 15). The two events are Clinton’s only UK appearances to discuss her book. It promises to be a unique opportunity for the audience to hear about Clinton’s personal experiences during a presidential race never short of controversy, as well as her candid reflections on how she coped in the aftermath of the defeat.

Tickets for Hillary Clinton’s event will go on sale to Southbank Centre members on September 14, with the general public sale opening on September 15; The Festivals runs from 13 October – 1 November 2017.
