An evening to celebrate the launch of Matt Kennard’s The Racket: A rogue reporter vs the masters of the universe
While working at the Financial Times, investigative journalist Matt Kennard uncovered a scam – a deception and rip-off of immense proportions.
From slanging matches with Henry Kissinger to coffee with the man who captured Che Guevara, Kennard’s unbridled access over four years to the crème de la crème of the global elite left him with only one conclusion. The world as we know it is run by a squad of cigar-smoking men with big guns, big cash and a reach much too close to home.
But, through encounters with high-profile opponents of the racket, such as Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, Gael García Bernal and others, Kennard shows that human decency remains. Now it’s time for the world’s citizens to also uncover the racket.
Matt Kennard will be in discussion with Owen Jones, Ellie Mae O’Hagan and rapper Potent Whisper, with Amelia Abraham from VICE.
There will also be art installations, music and spoken word poetry.
