Lustleigh Society Event - 21st January

The Lustleigh Society

Ian Mortimer on “Centuries of Change”
Ian Mortimer, author of the Time Traveller’s Guides to Medieval and Elizabethan England, will be talking on the subject of his latest book: “Centuries of Change”, at the Lustleigh Society meeting on Wednesday 21st January. Prompted by a throwaway remark by a BBC newsreader in 1999, Ian Mortimer considers which century saw the most change in the West - and therein comes face to face with the question of what change is, and what causes it. Not one of the last ten centuries can be said not to be a 'time of great change'. The real question is: what message does it spell for our future?

The meeting will take place in Lustleigh Village Hall starting at 7.30 p.m.

Visitors £3 (Members free) refreshments available.
