Jon Ronson brings Frank Sidebottom to Hyde Park Picture House

Written by

Jon Ronson is a man with many strings to his bow. Journalist, author, documentary film-maker and radio presenter. What doesn't this Welshman do?

His works include the best-selling book, The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was turned into a war parody starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor in 2009.

Luckily for us Leeds folk, Ronson – who used to pen a column for Time Out London back in the day – isn't too busy to visit Leeds. He's heading to our neck of the woods next week to promote his new book, So You've Been Publicly Shamed.

At 6.30pm on Thursday March 12 he’ll be doing a signing at Waterstones on Albion Street before being whisked off to the wonderful Hyde Park Picture House for a special screening of the Michael Fassbender- and Domhnall Gleeson-starring Frank, which Ronson won a Best Screenplay award for at last year's British Independent Film Awards.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, Frank is a funny but profound tale inspired by Ronson’s real-life experience as the keyboard player in Frank Sidebottom's band.

Tickets are just £2.50 for those who attend the Waterstones signing.
