COOKHAM BOOK CLUB
The Cookham Book Club was started in 2015, we only have a few members, but we are keen to allow others to join. We meet every month (not August) at 20:00).
The book for this month is
'Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind' by Yuval Noah Harari
years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today
there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did
our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our
foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms?
How did we come to believe in gods, nations and human rights; to
trust money, books and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy,
timetables and consumerism? And what will our world be like in
the millennia to come?
The next meeting will be on Thursday 7th December 2017 at the old Swan Uppers at 20:00
