Martin Puchner: The Written World

Martin Puchner: The Written World

Saturday 2 March, 7.30pm-8.30pm

Al Ras 3, InterContinental, DFC

From Homer to Harry Potter, Martin Puchner tells the story of civilisation as it was shaped by literature.

Puchner leads us on a remarkable journey through time and around the globe to reveal how stories and literature have created the world we have today. Through sixteen foundational texts selected from more than four thousand years of world literature, he shows us how writing has inspired the rise and fall of empires and nations, the spark of philosophical and political ideas, and the birth of religious beliefs.
