Simon Schama - The Wordy Tour
thursday 6th June 2019
8:00pm - Main Stage
Tickets €34.50, €29.50
Can words still pack a punch in the reign of Twitter? Have the carriers of thought, the deliverers of argument, the elements of poetry, the sounds that make us human lost their force in the age of short attention span?
Simon Schama has lived in the house of words for half a century - as a historian, art critic, broadcaster and journalist. He has spun the web of words in big books and tight essays; he's done stand-up in Chicago and live cook shows on TV. Now he has a new collection of writing on everything from Falstaff to Leonard Cohen, from pomegranates to populism.
Now hear his words live on stage this June.
