Helen Macdonald’s love of falconry began when she was a child. She had learned all the arcane terms, and poured over T. H. White’s classic The Goshawk, an account of his struggle to train a hawk.
While grieving the death of her father, Helen’s childhood interest was rediscovered. H is for Hawk is a beautiful and passionate account of her close encounter with nature and an unflinching account of her struggle with grief, interwoven with a multifaceted biography of the troubled genius of T. H. White himself.
Come along to meet Helen and hear her talk about falconry, T. H. White, and the crafting of this magical book, destined to be a nature classic.
