The Book of Humans – The Story of How We Became Us

Date: Sunday 23rd September 2018
Venue: St Peter’s Church | 4pm
Tickets: £14

The geneticist, and presenter of the flagship BBC Radio 4 programmes Inside Science and The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry, brings us a thrilling new examination of what sets us apart in the animal kingdom.

In an original and entertaining tour of life on Earth, he explores how many of the things once considered to be exclusively human are not (no, we’re not the only species that makes tools, utilises fire, or has sex for fun), yet how evolution has allowed us to have a complexity that outstrips any other observed in nature.

Adam Rutherford is the author of the bestselling A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived.
