Tonight: Soyinka in London for Ken Saro-Wiwa

Apologies for posting this late, but better late than...

Wole Soyinka heads the line-up tonight in an event commemorating the 10th anniversary of Ken Saro-Wiwa's death. Remember Saro-Wiwa is at the Purcell Room of London's South Bank Centre. Also on the programme are poets Alice Oswald and Byron Wallen. Lemm Sisay is the MC. These and many others will be reading in celebration of the life and work of the late environmental activist and fighter for the cause of the Ogoni people of Nigeria.

The event, starting at 7.45pm, is sold out. Return tickets only.
