Description

About this book group:

MiLAN Collective and Blackwell's Newcastle are joining forces to bring a themed monthly book group around the Wellcome Book Prize 2017 long list.

If you fancy joining us for any of these sessions, you'll be able to get the books on offer from Blackwell's Newcastle branch - just mention at the till that you are part of the Book Group. All you need to do then is show up for a relaxed discussion with drinks and nibbles provided by Blackwell's.

The MiLAN-Blackwell's book group takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

To see all the books that the group will be reading and discussing over the next 12 months, please click here.

Reading in September:

This month we will be discussing Yuval Noah Harari's Homo Deus.

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling ‘Sapiens: A brief history of humankind’, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In ‘Homo Deus’, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.

How to join:

Our Book Group is free to join and to attend, and there's no need to book a ticket.

We welcome both medical professionals and students as well as general public and people with an interest in medicine and illness.

For more information please email Mariana (newcastle.events@blackwells.co.uk) to request to join our book group mailing list.
