100 Acts - Book Reading
Comedian and political activist Mark Thomas comes to St Austell to read excerpts from his hilarious and thought-provoking new book: '100 Acts of Minor Dissent', designed by local artist and illustrator Greg Matthews.
The book is an account of a year spent living provocatively: from successful campaigns against Royal Parks and multinationals, to arts and crafts with porn mags … Mark stopped at nothing.
The Acts were sometimes bold, sometimes surreal. Many brought about change and others were done for the sheer hell of it. 100 Acts makes for dangerously inspiring reading and Mark is in town to tell us all about it.
He will also be signing copies of his book after the talk.
Time Out says: "A superb campaigning comic... always incredibly funny."
Mark says: "I [did] 100 Acts of Minor Dissent because I love local communities and the way they work and I hate the way neoliberalism turns our streets into bland replicating copies of each other. And yes, I am aware I sound like a Marxist Victor Meldrew but, guess what, I'm over 50 and I don't give a f**k."
We expect this event to sell out quickly as Mark doesn't get down
west very often, so get your ticket now!
NB: Please note, this event is unlikely to be suitable for younger children. If you wish to bring children that is at your discretion (there might be some naughty words).
This is a fundraising event for Mid & East Cornwall Green Party – part of the #GreenTalks series.
