Umberto Eco in conversation with Paul Holdengräber

RIP Umberto Eco, bestselling Italian author and semiotician perhaps best-known for his novel 'The Name of the Rose', who sadly died aged 84 earlier this week. This week's podcast revisits our event from November 2011, when we were lucky enough to host Eco as he discussed the persistence of conspiracies, the infinity of lists, the future of books, and writing fiction.

Eco was in conversation with Paul Holdengräber, Director of LIVE from the New York Public Library.
