Literary Event, Free Event
To celebrate the launch of his new book, The Honesty Pot, author Nick Thomas and an informed and insightful panel will be discussing the importance of social enterprise and its impact on society. Nick will be joined by CIC Regulator Sara Burgess and founder of the Pierian Centre June Burrough, who's fascinating story inspired Nick's fantastic new work.
The book traces the influences of June's early years on her journey towards creating the Pierian Centre - a ten year project that aimed to draw a focus towards authenticity, social justice, service and creativity through training and self-development. A challenge to businesses, individuals and society as a whole, the Pierian Centre aimed to re-intergrate work and leisure, bring communities together and promote humanity above profitability.
Join us for a quasi-political debate in a relaxed atmosphere, accompanied by live music and a free copy of The Honesty Pot for all attendees.
