The Kindness Revolution – Friday 14 May 7.30pm
Erasmus Primary School is thrilled to be hosting Hugh Mackay, in person, to launch his latest book. Leave your desk and screen behind, and join us for a memorable night out with friends!
Absorbing, wise and inspiring, The Kindness Revolution captures the essence of Mackay’s life’s work as social psychologist and researcher. Written for our times, this truly remarkable book shows how crises and catastrophes often turn out to be the making of us and explains why radical kindness is the key to healing. To quote from the book’s opening chapter: ‘To be kind – always and to everyone – is to be fully, gloriously human, and every act of kindness is one more step towards a better society.’
Copies of The Kindness Revolution, The Inner Self, Beyond Belief and The Good Life will be available for purchase and signing on the night.
