Event description

Description

Join us on February 21st at 5.30pm for an evening with author and journalist Will Storr to talk about his most recent book “Selfie: How the West became Self-obsessed”.

We are living in an age of heightened individualism, where success is a personal responsibility and where to succeed is to be slim, rich, happy extroverted and popular.

The pressure to conform to this idea has changed who we are and the expectation of perfection comes at a cost.

As the Young Foundation deepens it’s support of collective and community well-being, we invite you to join us in exploring compelling themes in Will’s book - and what this tells us about how we must change.
