The Power of Geography – Livestream Event
Wednesday 28 April, 7pm
In collaboration with our friends at Village Books and Sevenoaks Bookshop, we’re delighted to be welcoming Tim Marshall to our virtual stage.
If you want to understand what’s happening in the world, look at a map.
Tim Marshall’s global bestseller Prisoners of Geography showed how every nation’s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Since then, the geography hasn’t changed, but the world has.
In this revelatory new book, Marshall takes us into ten regions that are set to shape global politics and power. Find out why the Earth’s atmosphere is the world’s next battleground; why the fight for the Pacific is just beginning; and why Europe’s next refugee crisis is closer than it thinks.
In ten chapters covering Australia, The Sahel, Greece, Turkey, the UK, Iran, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Space, delivered with Marshall’s trademark wit and insight, this is a lucid and gripping exploration of the power of geography to shape humanity’s past, present – and future.
Attendees will be emailed the Zoom password and access link no later than the morning of the event.
This event is being hosted in conjunction with fellow independent bookshops, Village Books, Dulwich and the Chorley Wood Bookshop.
There is also a Book and Ticket option.
