David Lammy: Tribes
Pennine Lecture Theatre, Sheffield
Thursday, 23 Apr 2020
7:00pm to 8:30pm
Join David Lammy for an in conversation discussion about his brand new book Tribes: How Our Need to Belong Can Make or Break Society.
In Partnership with Off The Shelf Festival of Words
Both memoir and call-to-arms, Tribes explores both the benign and malign effects of our need to belong. How this need - genetically programmed and socially acquired - can manifest itself in positive ways, collaboratively achieving great things that individuals alone cannot. And yet how, in recent years, globalisation and digitisation have led to new, more pernicious kinds of tribalism.
This book is a fascinating and perceptive analysis of not only the way the world works but also the way we really are.
