Jay Griffiths, prize-winning author of Wild, brings us a brave and illuminating portrayal of childhood from around the world. In Kith: The Riddle of the Childscape, she compares the childhood experiences of communities in the Arctic and West Papua to young people in Britain, ultimately asking the question: why do children in many traditional societies seem happier than those in Western cultures? Don’t miss out on the chance to hear firsthand about Griffiths’ breathtaking voyage of discovery, and ask her questions about this fascinating issue.
