James Gleick in conversation with Roger Highfield as part of The Times Cheltenham Science Festival

Events details

Our world relies on information, from African talking drums to letters to texting. The mode might have changed, but the underlying principle remains: we are sending, storing and communicating knowledge. James Gleick, author of The Information and winner of 2012’s Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books, joins us to talk about information – how we use it and why.

James Gleick is an author, journalist and biographer and winner of the 2012 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books.

Dr Roger Highfield is the Director of External Affairs at the Science Museum Group.
