We’re thrilled to be joined by Carlo Rovelli and Sarah Perry as they discuss Carlo’s new publication Helgoland. In Helgoland, one of the greatest communicators of modern theoretical physics celebrates the rebellious spirit of the early quantum physicists and presents his own fascinating theory of how our world fundamentally exists through relations and events.
Carlo Rovelli is a theoretical physicist who has made significant contributions to the physics of space and time. He has worked in Italy and the US, and is currently directing the quantum gravity research group of the Centre de physique théorique in Marseille, France. His previous books include Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, The Order of Time, Reality Is Not What It Seems and There Are Places in the World Where Rules Are Less Important Than Kindness.
Sarah Perry is the author of Essex Girls, Melmoth, The Essex Serpent and After Me Comes the Flood. She has been the UNESCO City of Literature writer-in-residence in Prague and a Gladstone's Library writer-in-residence. Her work has been translated into twenty-two languages.
The Book + Ticket bundle include one paperback copy of Helgoland (RRP £10.99) which will be available for collection on the day.
