NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH
A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived by Adam Rutherford
Adam is a local author whom we are delighted to welcome to the Dulwich Literary Festival on Saturday 12th November at midday. He’ll be in conversation with Ed Yong, author of I Contain Multitudes. Adam’s newest book is the history of who you are and how you came to be. It is unique to you, as it is to each of the 100 billion modern humans who have ever drawn breath. And it is also the collective story of the history of our species – births, deaths, disease, war, famine, migration and sex.
