New Humanist Magazine, Summer 2016 Issue Launch Party With Cal Flyn and Reni Eddo-Lodge

Thursday 2nd June 19:00 at London - Piccadilly

Join us as we launch the Summer 2016 edition of New Humanist magazine, with the acclaimed writer and reporter Cal Flyn.

Cal Flyn was holidaying at her childhood home in Scotland when she stumbled upon a disturbing family secret. She discovered that her great-great-great uncle, Angus McMillan, who had been mythologized as a great explorer and pioneer of early Australia, had in fact been the leader of a number of gruesome massacres of indigenous people. Driven to piece together his story and to investigate her own family history, Cal decided to retrace his journey, looking for answers: How could a man lauded for his integrity commit such appalling acts? What have been the long-term consequences of his actions? And has today's generation inherited a responsibility to atone for its ancestors' sins?

Cal will be in conversation with Reni Eddo-Lodge, a writer and commentator on race, politics and popular culture.

Tickets are £5 (£3 for members of the Rationalist Association) redeemable against a signed copy of the book. To purchase your ticket please email piccadilly@waterstones.com or telephone 020 7851 2400.

Audience members will get a free glass of wine, plus a copy of the latest New Humanist.
