Yuval Noah Harari

Bestselling author and polymath

From the dawn of humankind to the deep future, Yuval’s new book Sapiens: a Graphic History tells the story of our species like never before.

In collaboration with how to: Academy, celebrating the release of his new graphic novel, Sapiens: A Graphic History – The Birth of Humankind, Yuval will explore the ways in which biology and history have defined us, to challenge us to reconsider accepted beliefs, to connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and to share the journey of radically adapting his bestselling book into a visual format.

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one-homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?
