**All tickets include a copy of Intimations posted directly to your door**

A rare opportunity to join prize-winning author Zadie Smith as she reflects on these extraordinary times, and what this new unfamiliar world reveals about the world that came before it, documented in the six profound essays in her new collection Intimations.

What does it mean to submit to a new reality - or to resist it? How do we compare relative sufferings? In our isolation, what do other people mean to us? How do we think about them? What is the relationship between time and work? These are just some of the questions that Zadie Smith asks in Intimations, written in the early months of lockdown. 

Don’t miss this chance to join one of our most clear-sighted and essential writers for an evening of reflection, and an exploration of what should come next.  Zadie Smith will be in conversation with Shahidha Bari.

This event takes place on publication day for Intimations, so it will be posted out by the bookshop and you should receive it in the week following the event.
