Jared Diamond

Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning and bestselling author of Collapse and Guns, Germs, and Steel, takes the stage to discuss his latest foray into a field he has made his own -- a biological analysis of human history.

The World Until Yesterday: What We Can Learn from Traditional Societies? provides a mesmerizing firsthand picture of the human past as seen in traditional societies (such as the Inuit) and considers what this way of life gone by can mean for our personal lives today. A characteristically provocative, enlightening, and entertaining book, it will be essential and delightful reading.

Writers On A New England Stage is a co-production of New Hampshire Public Radio and The Music Hall.
