Richmond Literary Lunch:
After a two course lunch with wine join renowned authors Philip Collins and Lord Patten as they talk about their creative work, overlooking
Old Deer Park.
Philip Collins, columnist and leader writer for The Times and chairman of the independent think tank Demos, was chief speech writer for Tony Blair. His book When They Go Low, We Go High: Speeches that Shape the World – and why we need them is thought-provoking and relevant.
Lord Patten of Barnes’ autobiography, First Confession: A Sort of Memoir, is not a typical politicians attempt to set the record straight. Rather it is an honest, sometimes intimate, account of the relationship between politics and identity and the things that have shaped him. Lord Patten and Phillip Collins have an unrivalled knowledge of the UK and world a airs. Their conversation promises to be timely.
