About this Event

We're loving our online adventures with 5x15 and after July's sparkling edition, we're delighted to be back in August with an outstanding line up of writers to fire the imagination and inspire new ideas and ways of thinking about the world around us.

Lisa Taddeo on her book Three Women - a world-wide sensation, the result of thousands of hours spent in the company of its subjects – three women whose lives reveal profound and previously unspoken truths about life and love, womanhood and desire.

Lily Cole on Who Cares Wins: Reasons for Optimism in Our Changing World - a radical guide to thinking differently about the world and initiating change. Lily is a philanthropist, environmental activist, model and actress.

Adam Rutherford is an honorary research fellow at UCL, a geneticist, author and broadcaster. He talks about his timely new book debunking racism with science- How to Argue with a Racist.

Irish journalist and writer Fintan O'Toole speaks to Peter Geoghegan - investigations editor at openDemocracy - about his groundbreaking new book Democracy for Sale: Dark Money and Dirty Politics about democracy in crisis, and unaccountable and untraceable flows of money.

Leading historian and masterful story teller Simon Schama is Professor of Art History and History at Columbia University, author of numerous best selling books, and has written and presented more than fifty films for the BBC.
