A celebration of Samuel Johnson


'Samuel Johnson, a man whose talents, acquirements, and virtues, were so extraordinary, that the more his character is considered, the more he will be regarded by the present age, and by posterity, with admiration and reverence.' James Bowell Broadcaster, writer and former president of the Johnson Society, Libby Purves, chairs an evening devoted to the great man of letters. With contributions by Beryl Bainbridge, Richard Ingrams, Johnson's latest biographer David Nokes and A.N. Wilson. To be held at the Conference Centre, The British Library.
