Frank Gardner: Blood & Sand
Important: Alleyn’s School and Dulwich Books announce that due to circumstances beyond our control the date for the Frank Gardner talk has been changed. The talk has moved from Wednesday 18 June to Thursday 19 June. All other details remain the same. The event starts at 7.00pm in The MCT at Alleyn’s.
Frank Gardner, the BBC's security correspondent, was shot 6 times at close range while on assignment in Saudi Arabia in 2004 and left severely wounded and dependent on a wheelchair. He was awarded an OBE by HM The Queen in 2005.
In 2004 Frank wrote Blood & Sand an honest, moving and inspiring account of his shooting and the circumstances in which it happened.
Now updated ten years on he reveals a deep understanding of the Islamic world and offers a compelling analysis of the on-going 'War on Terror' and what it means in these uncertain times.
