Bernie Sanders is to make a rare trip to the U.K. to coincide with the paperback release of his best-selling book Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In. The book tour will take place in early June and includes appearances at the Festival of Ideas in Bristol and at the Hay book festival in Oxford. Sanders will also speak at London's Brixton Academy, a 5000 capacity venue normally used by touring bands and artists, on June 2.
Earlier this week it was reported that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn hopes to secure a late endorsement from Sanders during his visit, which will come shortly before the U.K. general election on June 8. Asked if Sanders would endorse him when he visited Britain, the Labour leader told The Guardian: “I can’t say. I hope he will. I think he probably will, actually. But we mustn’t predict these things.”
