IFOA and Penguin Random House Canada invite you to the release of The Last Neanderthal by award-winning and best-selling author Claire Cameron as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series.

Where do we come from? How did we get here? What does it mean to be human? These questions breathe life into The Last Neanderthal, a novel centered on two women separated by millennia but linked by an epic journey that will transform them both.

“A powerful, warm and thought-provoking book that artfully blends facts with fiction to put flesh on many abstract scientific debates.” – Yuval Noah Harari, international bestselling author of SAPIENS: A Brief History of Humankind and HOMO DEUS: A Brief History of Tomorrow

Join us at No One Writes To The Colonel, meet the author, network and celebrate new work!
