Festival of Ideas: Mark Henderson and Angela Saini - In Defence of Geeks
Please note: this event took place in May 2012
In The Geek Manifesto: Why Science Matters Mark Henderson explains why the geeks of the world are no longer apologising for their obsessive interest in science and are gradually finding an increasingly powerful public voice. Delving inside the psyche of India's science-hungry citizens, in her book Geek Nation Angela Saini explores the reason why the government of the most religious country on earth has put its faith in science and technology.
Fee: £7.00 full/ £6.00 concessions
