We're going on an intellectual backpacking trip, yay!Give your brain a work out with Dutch author Geert Mak, as he kicks off a series of provocative talks examining Europe’s place in the world. And we don’t mean at the top right hand corner of the map. Geert’s magnum opus "In Europe" mixed up history with a big dollop of travel writing and observation, making it a pretty personal account of the 20th century. No mean feat. Tonight, he’s going to discuss his view on what’s gone wrong in Europe today and how to make it right. If there’s one thing we can say, he’s a man who likes to take on challenges.
