Ladders To Heaven

By Mike Shanahan

How fig trees shaped our history, fed our imaginations and can enrich our future

Author event - Science in the Pub - 7 June 2017

Some of the best ideas are the simplest ones. Like Science in the Pub. It brings people together in the informal setting of a London boozer to hear about and discuss interesting scientific topics.

On Wednesday 7th June I'll be joining the crew to talk about the weird biology that explains why fig trees are so important to ecology, to culture and to the future of life on earth. The talk will be upstairs at the Old King's Head, 47-49 Borough High Street, SE1 1NA (near London Bridge station; see map). Doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start and the event is free (see the Facebook page).

Unbound has sold out of my book Ladders to Heaven: How fig trees shaped our history, fed our imaginations and can enrich our future but I will have some copies for sale on the night. Hope to see you there.

Mike
