EVENING TALK: Hear Alain de Botton, the best-selling author of The Architecture of Happiness, and The Art of Travel, discuss his new book, The News, which explores the dominant role and impact that the news now has on our lives.

He asks questions like, why are disaster stories sometimes uplifting, why are celebrities’ love-lives so interesting, and why do we like to see politicians brought down. Join him for a fresh and intense analysis of the news machine.
