An Evening with Jon Ronson
Spend an evening in the company of writer and documentary film maker Jon Ronson, as he lets you into his wonderful world of weird happenings and strange characters.
His books, The Psychopath Test, Them: Adventures With Extremists and The Men Who Stare At Goats were international bestsellers.
The Men Who Stare At Goats has been turned into a major motion picture starring George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges.
He contributes features and columns to The Guardian. His many documentary films include Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes and The Secret Rulers of the World, and he’s a regular contributor to Public Radio International’s This American Life. He also makes the four times Sony nominated BBC Radio 4 series, Jon Ronson On...
His latest book, The Psychopath Test - a Journey Through the Madness Industry, combines his trademark humour, charm and investigative incision to ask serious questions about how we define normality in a world where we are increasingly judged by our maddest edges.
Why not join him, and see how you measure up?

I began The Psychopath Test late at night, tired, dispirited and ill – then found myself laughing like the proverbial loon for page after page
