How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations and human rights? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?

Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human:  our thoughts, our actions, our power . . . and our future.

Read and discuss Yuval Noah Harari's book.

Convenor;  Jill Dickinson
