Simon Schama Down Under

May 15, 2019

Check out some photos from Simon’s recent trip to Australia where he discussed both his upcoming book ‘Wordy’ which is out on the 30th May, as well as talking about ‘Belonging: The Story of the Jews’ in front of some packed audiences!

Simon Schama has been at the forefront of the arts, political commentary, social analysis and historical study for more than 40 years.

The bestselling author and beloved television presenter talks to David Marr about his new collection of essays, Wordy, a treasure trove for all those who have a passion for the arts, politics, food and life.

Whether Simon is considering the music of Tom Waits, the history of the colour blue or the works of Dickens, Wordy showcases some of his wisest, wittiest and most eloquent writing.
