Book Shambles Live

At the QED Conference

UPDATE: Unfortunately, at the advice of her doctors, Wally Funk will now be unable to travel to the UK for this event. Robin will still be joined by Sue Nelson, author of Wally Funk’s Race for Space.

Join award-winning comedian and bibliophile Robin Ince for a live version of the acclaimed Book Shambles podcast. The very special guests for this episode will be pioneering aviator and member of the Mercury 13, Wally Funk, and writer and broadcaster Sue Nelson, author of the new book Wally Funk’s Race for Space: The Extraordinary Story of a Female Aviation Pioneer.

The show uses books as a springboard into shambolic, often ludicrous and always passionate conversations into literature, science, philosophy, comedy, politics and, well, everything and anything. Expect high standards of both wisdom and nonsense.

Book Shambles Live will be taking place in the QED Podcast Room, and is free to attend for all QED ticket-holders.
