Is the relationship between the poetic imagination and the world of public events likely to be unusually vital when society as a whole is flourishing, enterprising and creative? An evening of readings and discussion.
B.H. Fraser, a City banker, and Grey Gowrie, a former Cabinet Minister, discuss how the worlds of finance, business and politics have influenced them as poets, and will be reading from their own published collections of verse.
Chaired by Hywel Williams, author and historian.
Moderated by Jeffrey Gedmin, President and CEO of the Legatum Institute.

Ranging widely across the arts, sciences and humanities, the conversations promote a discourse between cultural, philosophical, economic and political modes of enquiry.
