Walker Talks: A monthly live stream

Doris Lessing’s book, Prisons We Choose To Live Inside is transcribed from lectures she gave in Canada in the mid-1980s.  Her themes have to do with the hypnotic power of mass-ideas in societies and individuals.  Although composed in what seems to us now a different juncture of time and space, her searching thoughts still pierce through to the essential issues, enriching and challenging our minds today, as the process of civilization continues its onward flow.
Even more than this, we are brought closer to a living awareness of what has always been a constant presence in literature from the very beginning:  the need for an inspired basis of moral judgement, knowing the volatility that gives lies wings, even as truth takes solid steps on real earth.

Walker talks on a variety of themes, typically on the  third Thursday of the month,
live streamed on Bird & Beckett’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
