Airport Hires Writer in Residence

London’s Heathrow Airport has hired popular author Alain de Botton as its first “writer in residence.”

Great publicity for the airport, great for de Botton’s career, and great for airport passersby with enough time between connecting flights to stop by and meet an author. A rare win-win-win public relations stunt, and we hope it catches on at other airports around the globe.

The New York Times has the details. 

Meanwhile, you can obtain from your local public library copies of de Botton’s always-intriguing books: 

  • Kiss & Tell (1996)
  • How Proust Can Change Your Life (1997)
  • The Essential Plato (1999)
  • The Consolations of Philosophy (2000)
  • The Art of Travel (2002)
  • Status Anxiety (2004)
  • The Architecture of Happiness (2006)
  • The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work (2009)
