PLAYWRIGHT and broadcaster Bonnie Greer will be talking about her latest books Entropy and Obama Music at the Canary Wharf Idea Store tonight.

Obama Music is a collection of anecdotes about Bonnie's upbringing in America and how the music of that area relates to the new American president Barack Obama. Her novel Entrophy about the mystery links connecting between two lonely strangers came out last year.

She studied the art of writing plays with playwright David Mamet in her native Chicago before moving to the UK and her plays include Marilyn and Ella.

The writer makes regular appearances on BBC2's Late Review and took BNP leader Nick Griffin to task when she appeared as the one non politician on Question Time with him last autumn.

She will be speaking at the Idea Store, in Churchill Place, Canary Wharf from 6.30pm to 8pm and admission is free.
