Gyles Brandreth will be exploring poetry in a show at the Lichfield Garrick.
The author and former MP will visit the city on 16th November.
The event is to promote his book Dancing by the Light of the Moon.
A spokesperson said: “The brilliant new book is both a celebration of the best-loved poems in the English language and a unique guide to the value and power of learning poetry by heart.
“With the secrets of how to improve your memory and poetry that’s by turns funny, sad and moving, Dancing by the Light of the Moon is a book designed to lift your spirits and change your life.”
