Time: 7pm
Venue: Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

John Kampfner, former Chief Executive of Index on Censorship and current trustee, will interview the author Maziar Bahari about the experiences out of which his latest novel, ‘Then They Came For Me’, was born. The Newsweek journalist Maziar Bahari left London in June 2009 to cover Iran’s presidential election, believing he’d return to his pregnant fiancée, Paola, in just a few days. In fact he would spend the next three months in Iran’s most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogation sessions while terrible threats were made to his family.
