Join us for an entertaining in conversation with Richard Fidler and David Hunt.
In The Golden Maze, beloved broadcaster Richard Fidler brings a ‘light and loving’ touch to the history of Prague, starting from when he first fell for Europe’s most Instagrammed and uncanny city. Surviving the plague, a Velvet Revolution, Nazi terrors and more, this is not only the study of a fascinating city, but an examination of our human yearning for meaning amid the madness. It’s history done the Fidler way; with humour of course. Find out more about his experience with this and other past works in this unmissable conversation event with author David Hunt.
Local independent bookseller, The Book Shop Umina, will be on site on the evening to sell copies of Richard Fidler and David Hunt’s books for signing after the event.

His new book, The Golden Maze, is a biography of Prague, inspired by his experience of the city’s 1989 Velvet Revolution.
