The Big Read Book Club - Week 5: Finally meeting David Attenborough

This summer Kingston University wants to keep the Kingston community connected, from new students to alumni and everyone in between. We will be hosting our first-ever series of virtual Book Club meetings, centred around the 2020 Big Read Airhead, written by Newsnight host Emily Maitlis. You'll get to see the chapters of Airhead through the eyes of KU experts in weekly virtual talks from 8 July to 16 September 2020 - a chance you won't want to miss.

The fifth Big Read Book Club talk will be focusing on the chapter titled David Attenborough: One hour in a hot air balloon (p.79).

In this week's Airhead chapter, Emily Maitlis details her whimsical meeting with Sir David Attenborough, hundreds of feet above ground in a hot air balloon. Join us for a discussion with Associate Professor Pete Garside, as he further explores the career and messages of one of Britain's most beloved naturalists - and his own personal hero.

Please note, booking closes at 3pm the day before the event.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
