Event description

Description

Booka Bookshop, in association with University Centre, Shrewsbury are delighted to present an evening with acclaimed author A.N. Wilson as he discusses his new biography, Charles Darwin: Victorian Mythmaker.

Charles Darwin: the man who discovered evolution? The man who killed off God? In this bold new life - the first single volume biography in twenty-five years - A. N. Wilson goes in search of the celebrated but contradictory figure and uses his understanding of the Victorian era, its personalities and thought, to shed light on one of the most fascinating and disputed figures in history.

Charles Darwin: Victorian Mythmaker is a radical reappraisal of one of the great Victorians, a book which isn't afraid to challenge the Darwinian orthodoxy while bringing us closer to the man, his revolutionary idea and the wider Victorian age.

Join us for what should be a fascinating and thought provoking evening in the town of Darwin's birth.

Event Format: Author talk followed by audience Q&A and book signing

NB Event starts at 7.30pm (doors open 7.00pm)

Tickets: £10 (£5 redeemable against a signed hardback copy of Charles Darwin: Victorian Mythmaker)
