    Ben Okri joins us live from the Sydney Writers Festival to read from and talk about his latest novel The Age of Magic and what inspired it, its characters, on the true nature of magic, on the book's themes incuding what Goethe calls des Pudels Kern (the real nature or deeper meaning of things), on transcendent knowledge and why we truly are living in an age of magic, on the value of slow reading, why we need new forms of fiction, his new poetry book Wild, on the relationship between writing poetry and writing prose, upcoming work, and lots more.  Note: this interview took place following Ben's Age of Magic Talk which I referred to several times in my interview.  The talk can be listened to in full here: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/booksandarts/sydney-writers27-festival3a-ben-okri/6488934

    The Shed That Fed A Million Children

    in Women

    Do you believe it is impossible for one so-called “ordinary” person to have a major impact on the world stage? If so… think again!


    Join us as Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow shares the inspiring story from his book, The Shed That Fed a Million Children. As a young man growing up in rural Scotland, he had no concept about what life held in store for him and his family. One day, while sharing a pint with his brother, he decided he wanted to do something to help the children of war-torn Bosnia. From this first idea a movement was born.


    If you care about the children of the world, you won’t want to miss this account of inspiration, love and the power of hope.
