Acclaimed writer, respected thinker and outspoken former bishop, Richard Holloway, pictured right, will be at Main Street Trading Company on March 8 to talk about his long-awaited memoir, Leaving Alexandria.
Author Philip Pullman said of the book: “Richard Holloway’s memoir is endlessly vivid and fascinating. It’s the record of a mind too large, too curious and far too generous to be confined within any single religious denomination.
“His account of how a passionate, intelligent boy grew out of a poor and deprived background without ever losing touch with the humane values it gave him, will be a delight and inspiration to believers, non-believers, and ex-believers alike.”
The event is being held on Thursday, March 8 at 7.30pm and tickets cost £8 (includes a glass of wine). However, if you would like to win a pair of tickets to the event plus a copy of Richard Holloway’s memoir, just answer the following question:
