At the end of each of our Edinburgh Reads author events we ask the audience to fill in feedback forms telling us what they thought of the evening.
At last week’s event with Richard Holloway the same words kept coming up: candour, candid, openness, honesty.
People were also struck by Richard’s relaxed style, his sense of humour and thoughtfulness; but it was our speaker’s frankness that seemed to make the biggest impression.
For those of you who missed out, here is a special extended video of the author of Leaving Alexandria talking about his life, his faith and his struggles. Emotional, provocative, and yes, candid.
