Independent Bookselling for Independent Minds
Friday 3rd May, 8:00pm, Queen's Hall, Hexham
COGITO FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHT - From the huge range of wonderful events at this year's Hexham Book Festival, we've picked out a selection that we're particularly looking forward to. We have also reviewed a number of the books associated with these events in our Recommendations pages.
We'll have our book filled stall at all of the events, but if you would like to get a head start on your festival reading, we've already got many of the authors' books in the bookshop. Copies of the full programme of events are available to pick up in Cogito, or alternatively look online at the Hexham Book Festival website
Misha Glenny has spent years courageously investigating the most dangerous and sophisticated organised crime gangs around the world. Alternately very funny and very frightening, McMafia lifts the lid on global organized crime and its corruption, explains what’s happening behind the headlines – how Russian gangsters, Latin Ampolitical networks and Glennyerican cartel leaders, people traffickers and dodgy hedge funders exert their influence on our lives without us realising it. Glenny takes us on a tour through the dark depths of world capitalism and shows us how cyber hackers pose an increasing threat to global security.
