NEWBERG, Ore. – George Fox University’s William Penn Honors Program invites the public to a free lecture, “On the True Version of an Event: Saint Augustine of Hippo’s Conversion,” presented by independent philosopher and writer Miles Hollingworth on Thursday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m. in Room 105 of the school’s Hoover Academic Building.

Hollingworth is well-known for his work on Saint Augustine of Hippo. He is a past winner of the Jerwood Award for Non-Fiction from the Royal Society of Literature and the Elizabeth Longford Scholarship from the Society of Authors.

A philosopher who writes about the key texts and figures of the Western tradition, Hollingworth is founder and editor of the forthcoming book series Reading Augustine as well as the coeditor of the Edinburgh Companion to Political Realism. In 2011, he was shortlisted for the Gladstone History Prize. His new book, Ludwig Wittgenstein: An Intellectual Biography, is to be published by Oxford University Press this fall.
