'Friendship' Among Friends
with Professor A. C. Grayling

BE015

MON

DEC
Monday 9 December 2013, 8-9pm
£10 in advance (£12 on the door)
Part of the ongoing Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival programme.

To mark the publication of his new book, A. C. Grayling roves the rich traditions of friendship in literature, culture, art, and philosophy, bringing into his discussion familiar pairs as well as unfamiliar—Achilles and Patroclus, David and Jonathan, Coleridge and Wordsworth, Huck Finn and Jim.

Grayling lays out major philosophical interpretations of friendship, then offers his own take, drawing on personal experiences and an acute awareness of vast cultural shifts that have occurred.

There will be book signings at the end of this event with Daunt Books.
