Also on the 2nd of November, Sir David Khalili’s memoir, THE ART OF PEACE, was published. For the first time, Sir David shares his extraordinary journey: one that has taken him through the souks of North Africa, the auction houses of Europe and the United States, the bazaars of South Asia, and far beyond.
