Simon Sebag Montefiore in conversation with Sangita Myska.

The World: A Family History

Hay Festival 2023, 

Family shapes who we are and is one of the things we all have in common. In The World: A Family History, historian Simon Sebag Montefiore takes us through the story of humanity via the unit of the family. Starting with the footsteps of a family walking along a beach 950,000 years ago, he covers the families that have shaped our worlds, from the Medicis and Rothschilds to the Churchills, Kennedys, Kims and more. Simon Sebag Montefiore is in conversation with journalist and presenter Sangita Myska.
