Poverty Safari

  • Waterstones East Kilbride (map)

Waterstones East Kilbride will be hosting Darren McGarvey, author of the wise and witty Poverty Safari on Thursday 17 May from 7pm, where he will be giving a short talk and signing copies of his book.

People from deprived communities all around Britain feel misunderstood and unheard. Darren McGarvey - aka Loki - gives voice to their feelings and concerns, and the anger that is spilling over. Anger he says we will have to get used to, unless things change.

McGarvey invites you to come on a safari of sorts. A Poverty Safari. But not the sort where the indigenous population is surveyed from a safe distance for a time, before the window on the community closes and everyone gradually forgets about it.

Admission for this event is free and all are welcome - no booking required.
