An Audience with John Simpson - Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre

With over 40 years’ experience in international journalism John Simpson 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. Last autumn, John’s novel – a fast paced and revelatory thriller – MOSCOW, MIDNIGHT was published to critical acclaim, and John will sign copies of this and his other books after his talk. In this fascinating afternoon, John will talk about some of the difficult and often dangerous situations he has faced as a reporter, as well as some of the more light-hearted and amusing tales from his own travels interwoven with stories of figures who went before him, such as Ernest Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn and Charles Wheeler.
