Joseph Farrell & Lavinia Greenlaw
Wed 16 Aug 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Bosco Theatre (George Street)
Travel broadens the mind. Joseph Farrell, a noted translator from Italian, assesses the final years of Robert Louis Stevenson who settled in Samoa in 1890 and whose expert knowledge of the Pacific islanders turned him into a fierce critic of foreign interference. Poet Lavinia Greenlaw follows William Morris's travels in Iceland and probes the conflicted reasons for people wanting to leave home. Chaired by James Runcie.
