Secular Sermon: On Reading

At Deakin Edge (I'm the light blue speck in the middle)
On Sunday 17th April, I delivered a 'secular sermon' on reading at Federation Square's Deakin Edge theatre.

Hosted by The School of Life, the morning began with music from Angie Hart, including the beautiful 'Little Bridges'.

Drawing on The Art of Reading, I then spoke about my history of reading, the current spotlight on writing and writers, and the reader's power and virtues.

As always, more philosophical hand waving
An edited extract from the talk will hopefully be available soon.
