Join writer Emily Rhodes and other book-lovers for a walk in Regent’s Park discussing Ukrainian writer Andrey Kurkov’s darkly comic novel, Death and the Penguin.

Set in 1990s Kyiv, our protagonist Victor is a lonely aspiring writer, with just his pet penguin for company. Viktor lands a job writing obituaries for a newspaper, only to discover that he has in fact been drawn into a sinister political trap. Deadpan, absurd, gripping and moving, this highly original novel feels especially potent now.

This is a vital time to come together in celebration of and support for Ukrainian culture.

All money from ticket sales for this event will be donated to DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Find out more about the charity here: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal

We will be setting off from Daunt Books Marylebone at 10am and returning at 11.30
