Henry Hitchings - Why Samuel Johnson Still Matters

Saturday 28 March | 10:00

On a return visit to Lichfield Literature Festival, hear author and critic Henry Hitchings tell us why Samuel Johnson still matters in the 21st century. 
His latest book is The World in Thirty-Eight Chapters, or Dr Johnson's Guide to Life. Part portrait of Britain’s greatest man of letters, part collection of contemplative essays and part alternative self-help manual, this is a witty and erudite re-evaluation of Dr Johnson’s enduring importance and relevance.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear an acclaimed speaker talk on the grandfather of Lichfield’s heritage! 

Henry Hitching’s talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
