Laurence Rose & Julian Hoffman in conversation: The Nightingale’s Song
June 29 @ 15:00 – 16:00
Laurence Rose will be joined by Julian Hoffman in a wide-ranging conversation about the unique songs and cultural significance of nightingales. Together they will also explore the bird’s fragile future in Britain, as well as the nature of loss and the possibilities for replenishment.
Laurence Rose is the author of The Long Spring, which examines the joints between nature, conservation and culture. This year, he has been getting to know the nightingale population at Boldshaves in connection with his next book. Julian Hoffman’s latest book – Irreplaceable: The Fight to save our Wild Places – is an urgent and lyrical account of endangered places around the globe and the people fighting to save them.
