Reader events with the Guardian: Autumn 2014

 This autumn we are launching a new series of Guardian reader events, covering subjects from economics and the environment, to food, fashion and football. So far we have a stellar line-up of speakers, including David Mitchell, Naomi Klein, Ian McEwan and more. The events take place across various dates and venues and we'd love you to come along!

David Mitchell will discuss his new book Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse.

 Why is my jumper depreciating? Why is every film a sequel or a remake? Is there anything to be done about the internet? Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse - drawn from Observer columns and including new material - explores these troubling questions and other absurdities of modern life.

David Mitchell is a BAFTA winning comedian, actor and writer and the polysyllabic member of Mitchell and Webb. He writes for the Observer, chairs The Unbelievable Truth, co-hosts 10 O'Clock Live, is a team captain on Would I Lie To You? and has been in two films, neither of which made a profit.
Tickets £20 each, or £30 with a copy of the book.
