Peter Frankopan in Conversation with Antonia Maioni. The world’s leading history prize comes to The London Book Fair to discuss how well-researched, well-written works of history can find a growing international audience, and why the Cundill History Prize functions as a vital platform, connecting publishers from around the world with new general readers. 2018 juror Peter Frankopan (The Silk Roads/The New Silk Roads) will be in conversation with Antonia Maioni, Dean of Arts at Canada’s McGill University, which administers the $75,000 international prize – the richest for a work of non-fiction in English.
