Event description

Description

Poet and author Ruth Padel will speak about her work and her curation of a personal exhibition built around a theme of Poetry, Science and Nature: A Personal Journey into Conservation. Following David Attenborough and Robert Macfarlane, this is the third exhibition in a series where key figures allied to the environment movement offer insights into their work with nature and conservation. Ruth has a long history of working with conservationists, notably in India, has written a memoir on tiger conservation, a novel featuring field zoologists and ten poetry collections including The Mara Crossing, The Soho Leopard and Darwin: A Life in Poems, a verse biography of her great great grandfather. She is Professor of Poetry at King’s College London, a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Literature and Zoological Society of London, a Trustee of New Networks for Nature, and an acclaimed teacher and interpreter of contemporary poetry: objects and images in her exhibition illuminate and explore human relations with the wild through conflict and kinship, domestication, evolution, migration and symbolism.

Doors open at 6pm. There will be a wine reception between 6 and 7, and the reading will start at 7pm.
