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
Most humans contain between nine and twelve pints of blood. In Nine Pints, Rose George tells nine different stories about the liquid that sustains us, discovering what it reveals about who we are. Whether it’s through a trip to a controversial plasma clinic on the Canadian prairies, a tour of the UK’s only leech farm, or a visit to a London hospital where the medical team are revolutionising the way we treat trauma. George reveals the richness and wonder of the potent red fluid that courses around our bodies, unseen but miraculous.
