Bookshop Barnie - Matt Ridley

Tuesday 18th January 2011 6:45pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

In a recent review of The Rational Optimist, Fred Pearce criticises Ridley for becoming the 'chief cheerleader for a cornucopian view of the world'. George Monbiot goes one further, saying that 'it's the same old cornutopian nonsense we've heard one hundred times before (cornutopians are people who envisage a utopia of limitless abundance).'

Come along to this Bookshop Barnie with Matt Ridley and Austin Williams and find out if there is anything wrong with cornucopias!


Venue: The Gallery, Foyles Bookshop, Charing Cross Road, London
Time: 6:45 for drinks and a 7pm start
