We gathered once more in the beautiful grounds of Clayesmore  School for the society’s literature event.  This year the weather was clement which made for a very relaxed and English summer outing. So who did we hear? First up was Roman Krznaric  who gave a very interesting talk, indeed performance, on his lifestyle philosophy. Much of […]
