Derek Niemann: Birds in a Cage
Derek Niemann is a freelance writer and editor who spent 25 years with the RSPB, including 16 years as the editor of its youth magazines. Derek has written several books on nature and conservation for young readers. He writes a fortnightly Country Diary column for the Guardian, and is a frequent contributor to BBC Wildlife magazine.
This lunchtime talk is based on his first book for adults, Birds in a Cage, which was published in 2012.
Birds in a Cage is the story of a group of British POWs who overcame hunger, hardship, fear and stultifying boredom by focusing on their shared love of birds. Derek’s talk is not just about birds or war; it’s about the human spirit and how a love of the natural world can help people triumph over the worst
