Humankind Book Blast

1 March @ 19:30 - 21:00


Humankind Book Blast

Humankind: A Hopeful History by Dutch historian Rutger Bregman has been described by Stephen Fry as “an extraordinarily powerful declaration of faith in the innate goodness and natural decency of human beings.”

Join us in person or online for this special town-wide event, in partnership with Tina Gailsford-Waller of Hunting Raven Independent Bookstore. We will be discussing:

  • What did you find most memorable about Humankind? Do you agree with the author’s main argument?
  • What impact, if any, could Humankind have on your relationships with family, friends and strangers?
  • What messages does Humankind have for Frome?

Copies are on sale at the special price of £7.99 from Hunting Raven (normal price £9.99) or to borrow from Frome Library, which will be operating from a stall at the Wednesday and Saturday markets during February.

This event falls within the understanding kindness theme in the festival.
