Ben Okri at the Arts Centre

With words from Wild and other places
Arts Centre
Old Town, Swindon
Tuesday 14 May 2013

What makes us free, fraught, fragile, fabulous, fearful, or even frolicsome? What links us to sabre-tooth tigers, tiny mice, and the stars?

Author of nine novels, including the Booker prize-winning Famished Road, essayist, and short story writer, Ben Okri OBE now presents Wild, his first book of poems for more than a decade. His previous two were An African Elegy and Mental Flight.

In Wild, Ben Okri explores places where energy meets freedom, where art meets the elemental, and where what is wild in us is celebrated as an alternative to what is familiar.

Doors: 8pm

Ticket Prices: 8, Concession 7, Double Ticket for Agboton/Ceron & Okri 13
