Event description

Description

In today’s crazily busy world the importance of making time for leisure is more vital than ever. In a world where time is money, what is the value of walking without purpose, socialising without networking, nesting when we could be on our laptops?
Robert Dessaix shows, in his thoughtful and witty book, how taking leisure seriously gives us back our freedom – to enjoy life, to revel in it, in fact; to deepen our sense of who we are as human beings. Join Robert in conversation with Simon Caterson as he explains how we can reclaim our right to ‘rest well’, and to loaf, groom, nest and play, as he looks at leisure from many angles: reading, walking, travelling, learning languages, taking siestas and simply doing nothing. This lively and engaging conversation will remind us that at leisure we are at our most intensely and pleasurably human.
