About this Event

Join Jane Heal & Ruth Padel as part of a small audience in Somerville College, with biscuits and hot chocolate provided.

This event is part of www.notesfromabiscuittin.com. Notes from a Biscuit Tin is a year-long celebration of Mary Midgley’s philosophical vision. On what would have been Mary’s 100th birthday, her biscuit tin (gifted to Rachael Wiseman and Clare Mac Cumhaill by her family after her death) will begin a 12-month round-the-world voyage. From this tin Mary dispensed wit, wisdom and ginger snaps to her visitors over many decades. At twelve stops a poet and a philosopher will meet to share conversation and poetry on a theme from Midgley’s work.
