JOHN MURRAY ANNOUNCES FIRST STAGES OF THE CAMPAIGN FOR STEPHEN HAWKING’S FINAL BOOK BRIEF ANSWERS TO THE BIG QUESTIONS
On the eve of publication, John Murray will be hosting an exclusive evening with the Guardian, a multimedia public event to celebrate the release of the new book, with Hawking’s friends, family and very special guests talking about the Big Questions, Hawking’s final work and his legacy. Tickets will go on sale week beginning 10th September and proceeds will go to the Motor Neuron Disease Association and the Stephen Hawking Foundation. On Wednesday 17th October, the Babbage Theatre in Cambridge will host a public panel discussion on the Big Questions and Hawking’s legacy, with Hawking’s peers, colleagues, and other leading academics. Global news headlines on the eve of publication will be followed by a week of select international broadcast media appearances from Lucy Hawking.
John Murray is also delighted to announce that the Audiobook will be read by the award-winning British actor, Ben Whishaw.
Lucy Hawking on behalf of the Estate said: “Communication was so important to our father in his lifetime and we see this book as an integral part of his legacy, bringing his scientific writing and his social commentary together into one beautiful edition, laced with a dose of his trademark dry humor.”
