24th October

The Crown,

Stoke by Nayland


​Albert Read, author and MD of Conde Nast UK, will introduce his life-affirming book, ‘The Imagination Muscle’, during a dinner-time conversation with EA Festival founder, Joanne Ooi.  Called ‘beautiful, moving, relevant and practical’ by Alain De Botton, The Imagination Muscle explains, through a series of historical examples, how imagination is not a God-given talent but a faculty that can be trained and developed over a lifetime. In today’s age of technology, imagination is crucial – yet more elusive – in order to achieve peak fulfillment. Discover where to find ideas, how to foster skill in observation and connection, and how to be more attentive to the flow and motion

of your own mind.
