I’m delighted to announce that The Spectator will be hosting an evening with Kofi Annan early next year. The ex Secretary-General of the United Nations has played a major role in international politics for almost 50 years, and has become one of the world’s best-known diplomats. Working at the heart of the UN, Annan has had a unique behind-the-scenes insight into the world events of the twentieth century.

He’ll be speaking to Spectator contributor, writer and broadcaster William Shawcross on 17th January at Cadogan Hall in London. Shawcross will be discussing Annan’s new book — Interventions: A Life in War and Peace — as well as his career devoted to international politics.

We’ve got a special early bird rate of just £15 (exc VAT) until Christmas Eve, so book now to ensure you reserve a place at this low price. You can purchase your tickets here. It promises to be an insightful and unique evening, so we hope to see many of our Coffee House readers there.
