About this event

One of the pleasures of a good book is the conversations it can lead to: the opportunity to share and reflect on one’s thoughts and perspective with a fellow reader. In the latest in our series of book socials, The School of Life invites you for a morning of guided conversation about the themes and ideas of one of our most popular titles: What They Forgot to Teach You at School.

After an introduction from members of The School of Life faculty, attendees will be broken up into smaller groups to discuss the topic of what I was never taught at school. Prompted by a structured series of questions, you’ll be invited to open up about how your education has shaped your adult life and what you wish could have been different: the lessons you should have been taught, and those you could have done without. You don’t need to have read the book to participate: all that’s required is a little courage and curiosity.

Both engaging and illuminating, it’s a chance to meet a wide variety of people and gain a unique insight into what makes them tick. You’ll enjoy the polar opposite of small talk: deeply meaningful conversations about some of life’s most important ideas.

Join The School of Life at Working From_Southwark, London, for a conversational morning around their book titled, What They Forgot to Teach You at School, hosted by Billy Soulis on Tuesday the 22nd of November 2022 8:30am – 9:45am. Complimentary refreshments will be provided and we will have a pop-up shop full of products that you can receive 20% off if you purchase on the day of this event.
