Come and join us for an evening of optimism amidst the crunchy credit gloom. Laurence Shorter’s aptly timed and highly-praised new book The Optimist strikes us as the perfect antidote to the barrage of pessimism that greets every turn of the radio dial at the moment, which is why we’ve invited him to come and cheer us all up.
Laurence will read from his book – in which he explores the concept of optimism and travels the world to meet some of the world’s most optimistic people (from Archbishop Desmond Tutu to Mick Jagger) and gets right to the core of this most vital of philosophies.
So turn off the doom and gloom of Radio 4 for a night and come and join us for some positivity!
