By Bill Bryson

Bill Bryson, acclaimed author and winner of the 2004 Aventis Prize for Science Books, will talk about how, in his biggest book, he confronted his greatest challenge yet: to understand -and, if possible, answer - the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Bill will relay stories from his quest to find out such an array of strange and amazing facts which range from the moment of the Big Bang to the rise of civilisation.
