Books Do Furnish a Life: Reading and Writing SciencePavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Books Do Furnish a Life is divided by theme, including celebrating nature, exploring humanity, and interrogating faith.

For the first time, it brings together Richard Dawkins' forewords, afterwords and introductions to the work of some of the leading thinkers of our age - Carl Sagan, Lawrence Krauss, Jacob Bronowski, Lewis Wolpert - with a selection of his reviews to provide an electrifying celebration of science writing, both fiction and non-fiction. It is also a sparkling addition to Dawkins' own remarkable canon of work. Richard will be interviewed by author and ornithologist Professor Tim Birkhead.
