PART OF THE ART OUT OF REVOLUTION FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY PHILOSOPHY FOOTBALL

Throughout the 20th century, the Russian Revolution had a powerful effect on a section of the population not usually included in political accounts of the time: children. Young children receive books and culture largely through the filter of their parents and of course this applies to socialist parents too. In an upcoming book, Kimberley Reynolds, Jane Rosen and Michael Rosen have looked at the books, magazines and live entertainment inspired by the aims of revolution socialist and libertarian parents and carers shared with children between 1900 and 1960 . Directly or indirectly much of this was affected by events in Russia.  Our live and unique show, 'Children of the Revolution', features the three authors reading and talking about some of these. Specially commissioned by Philosophy Football for the centenary of the October 1917 centenary. 

At Rich Mix Arts Centre, Shoreditch, East London Saturday 21st October, 11.30-1pm. The session will include a bookstall of Michael's books provided by Brick Lane Books and a signing by Michael.

Tickets are priced for children (under 16 years), adults, and a family discount (up to 2 adults and 2 children).
