Event description
Jaqueline Mitchell will be introducing the superb collection, 'Birds: An Anthology' as part of The Oxford Festival of Nature.

About this Event

From early times, we have been entranced by the bird life around us. 'Birds: An Anthology' brings together poetry and prose in celebration of birds, records their behaviour, flight, song and migration, the changes across the seasons and in different habitats - in woodland and pasture, on river, shoreline and at sea - and our own interaction with them.

Join editor Jaqueline Mitchell as she discusses the anthology, alongside performance readings of quotes from an array of famous writers that feature within the book, including Geoffrey Chaucer, Charlotte Brontë, Jonathan Franzen and Barbara Kingsolver among many others.

The Oxford Festival of Nature is a 2 week events programme run by Berkshire Buckinghamshire Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust and collaborative partners across the city of Oxford between the 22 May to 7 June 2020. There are so many events to come along to and learn about wildlife and nature around you. Wild fun for everyone! For more information about the Oxford Festival of Nature visit www.oxfordfestivalofnature.org

This event is free to attend and everyone is welcome. Please register your place in advance. For all enquiries, email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk or call our Customer Service Department on 01865 333623.
