Join Professor Jim Al-Khalili for a panel discussion with this year’s shortlisted authors, followed by the announcement of the winner of the 2022 Royal Society Science Book Prize, sponsored by Insight Investment.
This year’s shortlisted authors Henry Gee, Professor Rose Anne Kenny, Peter Stott, Frans de Waal, Nick Davidson, Jeremy Farrar and Anjana Ahuja, will join our host to discuss the unifying themes explored within their books and the integral role that science plays in society and our everyday lives.
The books championed by the Royal Society Science Book Prize embody compelling science communication and provide an opportunity for readers to engage more deeply with science in an uncertain world. The five-strong judging panel for 2022 is chaired by neuroscientist, Professor Maria Fitzgerald FRS. She is joined on the panel by representatives from across the worlds of science and culture: television presenter, Kate Humble; physicist and Royal Society University Research Fellow, Dr Josh McFayden; novelist, Mike Gayle, and journalist, writer and technology consultant, Rory Cellan-Jones.
