Luke Harding: Murder, Mayhem, and Russia's Remaking of the West

Guardian journalist Luke Harding is one of the UK’s top investigative journalists and devotes his life to chronicling the impact that Russia and the USA have on the world stage. His latest book, Shadow State, is a gripping account of how Russian interference helped elect Donald Trump, backed Brexit, and threatened the very basis of western democracy, using spies to wage an increasingly bold war in the UK and beyond. From Salisbury to Helsinki, Washington to the Ukraine, the Kremlin has attempted to reshape politics into their own mold. There will be a reading by actress MyAnna Buring, who played the role of Dawn Sturgess, the one fatality, in the recent BBC dramatization, The Salisbury Poisonings.
