We’re thrilled to present a brand new event, Book Club Live, coming to London this October featuring two fantastic best-selling authors: Hannah Fry and Simon Singh.
Book Club Live brings the brightest and boldest ideas from leading authors to the stage, focusing on influential science, tech and dev books. Join us Oct. 19 at CodeNode, located in the heart of London’s Tech City, for our inaugural event.
We’re kicking the series off with:
• HANNAH FRY, a professor, mathematician, presenter of multiple critically acclaimed BBC documentaries and author of the upcoming "Rutherford and Fry’s Complete Guide to Absolutely Everything (Abridged)"
• SIMON SINGH, a theoretical and particle physicist, journalist and TV producer, and author of "Fermat's Last Theorem", the first book about mathematics to become a No.1 bestseller in the UK

Both Hannah and Simon will present a keynote talk before sitting together for a Book Club interview focused on:
• Hannah’s new book, "Rutherford and Fry's Complete Guide to Absolutely Everything (Abridged)", a comprehensive guidebook about how intuition is a terrible guide, how often our gut guesses let us down and how science is the only way to step outside our bodies and see the world as it really is
• Simon's best-selling, "Fermat's Last Theorem", which tells the story of the search for a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, first conjectured by Pierre de Fermat in 1637, and explores how many mathematicians tried and failed to provide a proof for the theorem
We’ll follow the interview with an attendee-led Q&A where you can get all your burning questions answered before winding down the evening at CodeNode’s SpaceBar to meet and mingle with attendees and the speakers over complimentary bites and drinks.
Tickets are limited and advance booking is recommended
