Alfred University Professor Emrys Westacott reviews 'Frugality' in Australia

Alfred University Professor of Philosophy Emrys Westacott has been in Australia discussing his recent book, The Wisdom of Frugality, at two literary events.  One of these is a special event sponsored by the Newcastle Writers Festival; the other is the Byron Writers Festival, a major literary festival held every year at Byron Bay, the easternmost point on the Australian mainland. 

Westacott's book was published last Fall by Princeton University Press and has been favorably reviewed in various publications including The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Financial Times, The Weekly Standard, and The Sydney Morning Herald.  Since the beginning of the year Westacott has given public lectures based on the book in Pittsburgh, Spokane, New York, Maine, Nottingham, and London.
