Artist Marisa J Futernick and Radio 4’s Justin Webb discuss the role of personal narrative and place in the American Presidency
An evening talk to coincide with the publication of Futernick’s new book of short stories and photographs, 13 Presidents, which features each president from Herbert Hoover to George W Bush as a protagonist.
Webb is a presenter of Radio 4’s Today programme and the BBC's former North American correspondent. Futernick is a London-based American artist who recently drove across the US to visit all 13 of the nation’s Presidential libraries as research for the book.
A screening of photographs from the publication will accompany the talk, which takes place just weeks before the US Presidential election.
