  • Yuval Noah Harari
    Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

    Monday 23rd February at 7pm at Daunt Books Marylebone High St.

    Sapiens was one of the biggest books of 2014, in which Yuval Noah Harari provides a wide-ranging and provocative account of Homo Sapiens from our foraging ancestors to the consumerism and bureaucracy of the present day. He charts a fascinating course for our species through cities to kingdoms, nations, human rights, money, books and laws and will be with us to tell us more and tackle the big questions of where to next.

    Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine, 20% off the speaker's books and 20% off supper on the night at Hardy's Brasserie and Wine Bar.

  • Eugene Rogan
    on
    The Fall of the Ottomans

    Tuesday 10th March at 7pm at Daunt Books Marylebone High St.

    Eugene Rogan won public acclaim with his suberb book The Arabs and he now returns with The Fall of the Ottomans, a sweeping account of the end of the Ottomans, and will be here to focus our attention on the Middle East as a theatre of conflict during the Great War. Despite fighting with skill and ferocity against the Allied onslaught and humiliating the British both at Gallipoli and in Mesopotamia, the Ottomans were defeated causing the break-up of four centuries of empire and profound realignments in the Middle East which still reverberate today.
    Eugene Rogan is Lecturer in the History of the Modern Middle East at Oxford.

  • John Gray
    in conversation with
    Adam Phillips

    The Soul of the Marionette

    Thursday 12th March at 7pm at Daunt Books Marylebone High St.

    John Gray's best-selling books Straw Dogs and The Silence of Animals established him as one of the most highly-regarded and controversial writers on what it means to be both animal and human. In his new book The Soul of the Marionette, he draws together the religious, philosophic and fantastical traditions to look at what it means to be free.
    Who better to tease out the details than psychotherapist and essayist Adam Phillips, who will join John in conversation.

    Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine, 20% off the speaker's books and 20% off supper on the night at Hardy's Brasserie and Wine Bar.

    Tickets may be purchased from our Marylebone shop in person, with credit/debit card by telephone 0207 224 2295 or here online.

    with
    India Knight

    A Bird in the Hand

    Thursday 26th March at 7pm at Daunt Books Marylebone High St.

    Diana Henry's wonderful A Change of Appetite was widely-regarded as one of the best cookbooks of 2014 and she is back with a new collection of recipes, this time giving chicken the centre stage. She has plundered the globe for some brilliant recipes - from quick Vietnamese lemon grass and chilli chicken thighs through to a complete feast with pomegranate, barley and feta stuffed roast chicken with Georgian aubergines, there is no eating or entertaining occasion that isn't covered in this book.
    We are delighted that the journalist, author and broadcaster India Knight will be with us to chat to Diana about the mouth-watering details.
