History for Tomorrow: summer launch events

Hello to you all. As fate would have it, my new book, History for Tomorrow: Inspiration from the Past for the Future of Humanity, will be published on the same day as the UK general election, July 4. The good news is that it’s got plenty of historical insights for the future Prime Minister (in fact, a thousand years worth).

The other good news is that there will be a series of launch events over the summer (full list here). These include a sneak preview at the Hay Book Festival on June 1, a big launch in Oxford on July 3 (where I’ll be in conversation with historian Michael Wood and economist Kate Raworth), events in London including at the How To Academy, and festivals such as Wilderness and ALSO (where you can get a discount with the code IKNOWROMAN; offer ends May 31). Later in the year I will be doing launch tours for international editions in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and Brazil.

You can pre-order the hardback or ebook here. I have also just spent three days in a studio recording the unabridged audio book (image below), which will be available on multiple platforms here. I was hoarse by the end, but managed to say the final beautiful line from Cicero:

History is the witness of time, the light of truth, the essence of remembrance, the teacher of life, the messenger of times past.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Hope you enjoy the book and please come and say hello at one of the events!
