This summer Kingston University will be hosting our first ever virtual Book Club. During these unique online events, you will be able to hear a wide variety of Kingston staff members relate their fields of expertise to specific chapters from Airhead, by Newsnight host Emily Maitlis. These talks will be held weekly from 8 July 2020 -16 September 2020. This is a great opportunity to connect with your new KU community before you arrive on campus.

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.

Booking closes at 3pm the day prior to the event.
