For almost half a century, Richard Mabey has written about the British countryside with an inimitable mixture of poetic tenderness and scientific authority. Author of such classics as Nature Cure, and Food for Free, he is justly regarded as on of Britain’s greatest living naturalists, with a magical gift for sharing his enthusiasms and perceptions.

A Brush with Nature is a varied and generous collection of his writings on subjects ranging from the Norfolk Broads to orchids, from nightingales to the poetry of John Clare.

Don’t miss this rare public appearance by a writer unrivalled at evoking the world that around us.
