Hear Observer editor Robert McCrum discuss his list of the 100 best non-fiction books of all time with Second Home co-founder Rohan Silva.

Following his acclaimed series of 100 Great Novels, Robert McCrum has spent the last two years compiling a list of great works of non-fiction in the English language.

With Rohan, he'll explore themes such as: is non-fiction a genre? Does a cook-book deserve to be placed alongside Origin of Species? And is race the great unmentionable in American society since the Revolution?

Tickets are free for members and £3 for non-members.
