Event description

Description

Botanical Shakespeare: An Illustrated Compendium of All the Flowers, Fruits, Herbs, Trees, Seeds, and Grasses Cited by the World’s Greatest Playwright with the first-ever foreword contributed by Dame Helen Mirren.


Alongside fellow literature-lovers, explore the hidden botanical treasures mentioned throughout Shakespeare’s work over champagne and afternoon canapés at London’s Sloane Club.


Listen to the author of Botanical Shakespeare, Gerit Quealy, in conversation with Country Life books editor, Mary Miers. The discussion will cover a range of topics and the author will discuss the many discoveries she has made whilst writing the book, including how reexamining Shakespeare’s work through plants has led her to solve some of his many mysteries.


Following an interactive Q&A session with the speakers, guests will have the opportunity to purchase Botanical Shakespeare, signed personally by Gerit.


An optional tour of the Sloane Club will take place for all those curious about the rich history behind the club, founded for serving and former lady officers of the Armed Forces in World War II.

**10% of ticket sales will be donated to the British conservation charity, Plantlife, dedicated to saving our rarest wild flowers and plants
