Respectable: Lynsey Hanley
- Sat, 05 Nov 2016
- 6.00 PM
- Tickets: £3/£2
Non-fiction writer and Guardian journalist Lynsey Hanley introduces her new book Respectable in discussion with Dawn Foster, writer and journalist on politics, social affairs, economics and author of Lean Out.
What does it mean to be middle class or working class? How does class affect us? Lynsey Hanley and Dawn Foster came to Bluecoat to discuss Hanley's latest book, Respectable (Allen Lane), which argues that class remains resolutely with us, as strongly as it did fifty years ago, and with it the idea of aspiration, of social mobility, which received wisdom tells us is an unequivocally positive phenomenon, for individuals and for society as a whole.
