Double Bill Offer: Book for the Jewish Book Week events in Hall Two and Hall One tonight – ‘The Women Who Made an Art of Having an Opinion: Sharp!’ at 7pm and ‘The Curious Case of Being Human’ at 8.30pm – for the special price of £24.

At 7pm, Michelle Dean and Rachel Cooke examine the lives and work of women like Doroth Parker, Hannah Arendt, Susan Sontag and Nora Ephron, whose precision of thought and writing cut through the attitudes of their time. At 8.30pm, author, broadcaster, scientist and geek Adam Rutherford presents The Book of Humans, his exploration of how we came to be – and to believe in – the animals we are today.
