HIDDEN NATURE - AN EVENING WITH ALYS FOWLER
Tue 2 May 2017, 19:30 – 21:00 BST
Join us for an evening in the company of award winning writer, presenter and passionate gardener, Alys Fowler, as she talks about her new book, Hidden Nature: A Voyage of Discovery.
Leaving her garden to the mercy of the slugs, Alys Fowler set out in an inflatable kayak to explore Birmingham's canal network, full of little-used waterways where huge pike skulk and kingfishers dart.
Her book is about noticing the wild everywhere and what it means to see beauty where you least expect it. What happens when someone who has learned to observe her external world in such detail decides to examine her internal world with the same care?
Beautifully written, honest and very moving, Hidden Nature is also the story of Alys Fowler's emotional journey: above all, this book is about losing and finding, exploring familiar places and discovering unknown horizons.
