Free: Coming of Age at the End of History
Saturday 24th September, 12-1pm
William Morris Tent
Recently announced as one of Prospect Magazine’s 2022 World’s Top Thinkers, author and academic Lia Ypi joins us to tell her unforgettable coming of age story which explores the meaning of freedom in the personal, collective and political sense.
Having grown up in Albania as the communist system collapsed and ushered in a turbulent new order, Lia traces the limits of progress and the burden of the past, illuminating the spaces between ideals and reality, and the hopes and fears of people pulled along by the sweep of history. Lea will be in conversation with Sameer Rahim, Deputy Editor of Prospect magazine.
