Jash Dholani

The Old Books Guy

For three years, Jash has been obsessively finding and reading old books in pursuit of thoughts that are as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago. He began writing threads on his reading experiences, and 17,000 tweets, 250 million views and hundreds of volumes later, he published a book of his own “Hit Reverse. New Ideas From Old Books”. Why do we need bordes? Is faith necessary in politics? What are the greatest advantages and surprising disadvantages of equality? Jash learned about these questions from the greatest authors over the years, and we'll be discussing them with him at the festival.
