“Authentic hope” was a key phrase in Guardian Editor Katharine Viner’s presentation to a lively BookBrunch breakfast briefing on 28 November.
She was introduced by PLS Chief Executive Sarah Faulder who welcomed senior figures in the publishing industry to our Shackleton House office. Her talk was the third BookBrunch Breakfast Briefing that PLS has sponsored, following Kwame Kwei-Armah and John Kampfner.
Speaking to a lively and engaged audience about her vision for the newspaper, to which she was appointed as Editor in 2015, Viner quoted American author Rebecca Solnit, “Authentic hope requires clarity and imagination”. It is these principles, Viner argued, that should guide the Guardian’s journalism.
