Ian Wright has been confirmed as part of the lineup for this year’s Reading Book Festival.

The Arsenal man will give a talk in which he discusses his autobiography, ‘A Life in Football: My Autobiography.’

Wright will open the festival on Friday, 28 October.

It’s sure to be an interesting evening as we all know that Wrighty speaks from the heart and says whatever is on his mind at the time.

Recently he’s been highly critical of Arsenal but there is no denying his passion and love for the club, as well as the massive contribution he made during his time as a player.

It should be well worth heading to if you’re in the region.

Tickets for events at the festival are priced £5, £7 or £20 for a weekend pass.
