Event 41 | Clive Myrie | Everything is Everything


Clive Myrie – Everything is Everything – A memoir of Love, Hate & Hope

As a Bolton teenager with a paper round, Clive Myrie read all the newspapers he delivered and dreamed of becoming a journalist. Thirty years on, he has reported from more than ninety countries for the BBC. In this deeply personal memoir, he reflects on how being black has affected his perspective on the many issues he’s encountered in reporting some of the biggest stories of our time. Everything is Everything is about the intersection of the personal and the professional and what he has learned.

In conversation with Susannah Simons

When: Saturday 11th November 2023 @ 5.30pm
