Darren McGarvey has experienced poverty and its devastating effects first-hand. He knows why people from deprived communities all around Britain feel angry and unheard. And he wants to explain... 

So he invites you to come on a safari of sorts. This book takes you inside the experience of poverty to show how the pressures really feel and how hard their legacy is to overcome. Razor-sharp, fearless and brutally honest, Poverty Safari is an unforgettable insight into modern Britain.

Join us to discuss this award-winning, polemical account of modern poverty.

The event is free to attend and is open to all - no booking required. If you don't have time to read the book, a summary will be available.
