Event description

Description

Join us for a very special event featuring Professor of Philosophy Emrys Westacott and award-winning British journalist and best-selling author Christina Lamb.

From 6.30pm to 7.30pm, Professor Westacott, from Alfred University in New York, will talk to Russell Blackford about his most recent book The Wisdom of Frugality: Why Less is More. It examines why, for more than two millennia, so many philosophers and people with a reputation for wisdom have been advocating frugality and simple living as the key to the good life. And it also asks why so many people have ignored them.

From 8pm to 9pm, journalist Christina Lamb will talk to Newcastle Writers Festival director Rosemarie Milsom about her reporting experiences from the world's war zones, as well as her best-selling books, which include I Am Malala and The Girl from Aleppo: Nujeen’s Escape from War to Freedom.

Thanks to MacLean's Booksellers, both writers will be signing books after their events. Thanks also to our event partners the University of Newcastle's School of Humanities and Social Science and Byron Writers Festival.
