Join Sam Knight at Stratford Literary Festival where he’ll be talking about his debut, The Premonitions Bureau. Premonitions seem impossible, but they can come true and what if these forebodings could help the world to prevent disasters? The leading long form journalist explores the enthrallingly true story of how, in 1966, John Barker, a dynamic psychiatrist working in an outdated British mental hospital, established the Premonitions Bureau to investigate these questions and found a network of correspondents including two unnervingly gifted ‘percipients’.
Sam Knight has covered a diverse range of subjects for the Guardian and The New Yorker including plans for the death of the Queen, the M&S prawn sandwich and art fraud. This journey is into the most powerful and unsettling reaches of the human mind.
