Simon Carnell in Ely

Thursday 18th March 2010

  • Venue The Bookshop, 9 High Street, Ely, CB7 4LJ
  • Doors open 12 noon
  • Start time 7.30pm

We are delighted to welcome Simon Carnell to Ely for a seasonal celebration of the creature once reckoned to be “the most lascivious and the most melancholy of animals”.

Hare is an especially fascinating addition to Reaktion Books’ highly praised Animal series, tracing the hare’s presence in art, literature, folklore and religious ritual, whilst also looking at the reality of this extraordinary animal’s existence. With its mixture of lively text and beautiful illustrations, Hare is a book that celebrates both the natural world and mankind’s representation of it.
