Come along to the thinking person's supper club with top philosopher Julian Baggini.
Julian's new book is called The Virtues of the Table and is subtitled, "how to eat and think". In it he asks the important questions, "can thinking about food teach us about being virtuous?" and "can what we eat help us to decide how to live?"
Tonight we'll eat a menu of Julian's devising, and in his company we will chew over the important questions. The evening will be just like Plato's Symposium, with the added extra of gin cocktails. Julian will sign copies of his book for you to take home at the end of the evening.
