In partnership with Granta Books, IMMA is delighted to present an evening in celebration of Accidental Gods: On Men Unwittingly Turned Divine by Anna Della Subin. Named a best book of the year in The Irish Times, the TLS, and Esquire, Accidental Gods is an extraordinary meditation on race, empire, and power, told through stories of men who found themselves inadvertently turned into deities. Subin will be joined by renowned mythographer, novelist, and literary critic Marina Warner and introduced by Mark O’ Connell, author of To Be a Machine and Notes from An Apocalypse.
