An evening with Kieran Cooke - The accidental Foreign Correspondent

Chasing Gadaffi round the Sahara Desert, chance meetings with the Pope and Castro, a kick in the head from a Ukrainian pole dancer, shot at in a Belfast cemetery, searching or Ludwig Wittgenstein's chickens in Connemara - it's all here in 'The Accidental Foreign Correspondent'.

Kieran Cooke, based between homes in Mayo and Oxford and a foreign correspondent for the BBC, Financial Times and the London Independent, reflects on more than 40 years of reporting from around the world - the highs, the lows and the downright bizarre. Kieran, a long-time contributor to the BBC's flagship 'From Our Own Correspondent' programme, will be launching and reading from his book at Tertulia bookshop.
