Topping & Company Booksellers are delighted to announce an event with John Bercow. The irrepressible former speaker of the House of Commons is making fewer than a handful of national appearances to publicise his much-anticipated book of memoirs.

Unspeakable is John Bercow’s characteristically forthright and incisive account of his unique vantage-point into British politics. Containing verdicts on many of the leading figures of this era, from Tony Blair to David Cameron, Theresa May, and Boris Johnson, Bercow explores and explains the ways in which he has sought to democratise the business of Parliament, using the Speakership to champion the rights of backbench MPs and hold the government to account.

As well as being able to hear John speak, you’ll have a chance to meet him as he signs copies of the book. The doors will open at 12.30pm; all seating is unreserved.

We look forward to welcoming you for a unique event.
