Arguably Britain’s best-known historian, Simon Schama has written and presented a number of wildly popular, award-winning historical television series and best-selling books over the past two decades covering topics such as the history of Britain, slavery, and the French Revolution. His latest, The Story of the Jews, his most personal and epic work, documents the diversity inherent to the Jewish world, spanning cultures, races, languages and national boundaries from 1000 BCE through 1492 CE. "We are in the hands of a master storyteller…Vivid, dramatic, thought-provoking…His splendid [work] convinces us that much of what we thought we knew is wrong." – Time Our community partner for this event is KQED.
