Clive Myrie: Everything is Everything

18 May @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Clive Myrie
Clive Myrie

As a Bolton teenager, Clive Myrie dreamed of becoming a journalist – now he is known for his reputation for fearless, objective reporting on some of the biggest stories of our time, most recently from the front lines in Ukraine. He talks to Kit de Waal about his remarkable career, how his family history has influenced his view of the world and how being Black has affected his perspective on the issues he’s encountered during his 30 years covering major global events.

Moving, engaging, revealing, Everything is Everything is a brilliant blend of the personal and the professional and how the two have intersected in Clive’s life and career. It is a story of love and hate – but also hope.

‘Infinitely more readable than the average journalism memoir, and decidedly more important.’ – Sathnam Sanghera, The Times

‘Read this!’ – Sir Lenny Henry
