Tim Marshall: Divided: Why we’re living in an age of walls

February 28 @ 19:30 - 20:30

The Grammar School at Leeds is delighted to welcome author and former diplomatic editor of Sky News, Tim Marshall, in conjunction with the Milim Festival on Thursday 28 February at 7.30pm.

Tim will be talking about his new book, Divided: Why we’re living in an age of walls.  His last book, Prisoners of Geography was a number 1 Sunday Times bestseller.

Every story has two sides, and so does every wall. We’re in a new era of tribalism and the barricades are going up.  Money, race, religion, politics: these are the things that divide us. Trump’s wall says as much about America’s divided past as it does its future. The Great Firewall of China separates ‘us’ from ‘them’. In Europe, the explosive combination of politics and migration threatens liberal democracy itself.

Tickets are £5 can be purchased from the Milim Festival here.

Thank you to Councillor Dan Cohen and former pupil of Leeds Grammar School for sponsoring the event.
