Event Details

For an area steeped in myth and fascination, the fabled city of Timbuktu has always seemed extraordinary to the outside world. But one of the most remarkable periods in its history was only 5 years ago, when a team of librarians and archivists joined forces to save its ancient manuscripts from jihadist threat. Charlie English, former head of International News at the Guardian and fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, has extensively researched this astounding place and expertly twines a story that is greater than any myth.
