Penguin Talks: Watch Yuval Noah Harari in conversation with Russell Brand

Watch the inaugural Penguin talk from Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens.

Penguin Talks is a new programme of free creative talks hosted by Penguin for young people across the UK, which give the audience the opportunity to both hear from and directly question a world-renowned thinker, writer or influential figure from our family of authors. Our aim is to help equip young people for the future by introducing a new generation of readers to new ideas and perspectives, and broadening their understanding of issues which speakers feel to be particularly prevalent for this generation.


The inaugural Penguin Talk gave 300 young people from colleges and secondary schools across South London the opportunity to hear from global phenomenon Professor Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens, in conversation with comedian Russell Brand.
