Tony won the Carnegie Gold Medal for his book, Lark, and dazzled the Festival in 2019 at this location, presenting How To Teach Philosophy To Your Dog
Journeys To The Greeks
Why, in the era of online tourist advice, do we still need and love travel writing? And why and how has Greece so seeped into our consciousness?
How has this small country and its mythology so deeply enmeshed itself into the hearts and souls of people around the world? Why does Greece so capture our imaginations and what is the Greek spirit? Authors and travellers Peter Fiennes, Julian Hoffman and Michael Vatikiotis in conversation with Sofka Zinovieff
