What you don't know about Leonardo da Vinci that would make you love him even more
Or so goes the through line of Ross King's talk with Kirk Lapointe (Event #12) about his book "Leonardo and the Last Supper", which King lavished with such details as Leonardo's favourite colours, his weapons of mass destruction, his genius, his late-life vegetarianism, his handsome legs, and of course one of his renaissance-era jokes about two friars and a business man that somehow manages to remain timeless with King's droll and erudite delivery.
This was one of the first statements at Event 11: The Secret Lives of Parents featuring Brian Fawcett, Priscila Uppal and Alison Wearing. With those words from Fawcett, the entire audience breathed a sigh of relief. Because divine births notwithstanding, we are all in the same boat.
