A talk by Booker Prize-winner Thomas Keneally will be streamed live at Middlesbrough's Central Library next week.
The Library is the only venue in the North East to host the event as part of the British Library's Living Knowledge Network.
The author of Schindler's Ark will talk about his new work The Book Of Science & Antiquities, a bold, millennia-spanning novel about what it means to be human.
The event from 7pm to 8.30pm on Thursday, August 29 will be live-streamed from the British Library during a rare visit by the author to the UK.
Tickets for the talk at Middlesbrough Central Library are £3. Call 01642 729002 to book.
