Boris Johnson keynote speech #MWF13

This event has finished

In addition to being the Mayor of London, a former journo and MP (and that guy who managed to get himself stuck dangling from a zip wire during last year’s Olympic Games), Boris Johnson just happens to be an author of both fiction and non-fiction tomes, as well as the former editor of The Spectator.

His most recent, 2012’s Johnson’s Life of London, tells the story of the city through a series of historical folk dating back to Roman times. Renowned for his ability to both offend and entertain, Johnson will open the 2013 MWF with his keynote speech. He's also in conversation with Annabel Crabb the following afternoon.

Go if… you’re into Conservatives, controversy and funny hairdos

All Melbourne Writers Festival tickets go on sale Friday July 19.
