To mark the American publication of her book “Forgiveness: An Exploration”, Marina Cantacuzino will be examining the fascinating and provocative subject of forgiveness using examples from the many people whose stories she has collected along the way. With a background in journalism, and as founder of The Forgiveness Project charity, Marina has spent the past 20 years unpicking and grappling with what it means to forgive.
