A cautionary tale. An exposé. A defence of the centre-ground. An appeal to reason. A call to arms. An honest account from the top and bottom of British politics. Come along to this public conversation with former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg who will be speaking about his new book, Politics: Between the Extremes.
