On Monday, 17th October, Timonthy Garton Ash will join us to discuss his new book "Free Speech". His book offers us 10 principles that he argues would preserve the right to expression but on agreed commonground. Among these principles are the freedom to question religion (while respecting religious people), defending the internet from censorship, and the right to freedom of information balanced with national security.
Timothy Garton Ash is the author of nine previous books, including The File: A Personal History, History of the Present and, most recently, Facts Are Subversive. He is Isaiah Berlin Professorial Fellow at St Antony's College, Oxford, and a columnist for The Guardian. Among the many awards he has received for his writing are the Somerset Maugham Award and the George Orwell Prize.
