A conversation with Bettany Hughes, author of 'Istanbul: A Tale of Three Cities'

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Istanbul has always been a place where stories and histories collide, where the idea is as potent as the fact. From the Qur’an to Shakespeare, the city previously known as Byzantium and Constantinople resonates as an idea and a place, overspilling its boundaries - real and imagined.

Award-winning author, historian and broadcaster Dr Bettany Hughes will talk about her epic new biography, taking us on a dazzling historical journey through the many incarnations of one of the world’s greatest cities.

There will be a book signing after the event.

Cost: £5
