Meet Paul Evans at Shrewsbury Literature Festival

24/11/2018 3:00 pm – 24/11/2018 4:30 pm | Shrewsbury Literature Festival

With a title taken from the 1940 Batsford book, How To See Nature is nature writing for the modern reader. It is a book both for those that live in the country and those that don’t, but experience nature every day through brownfield edge lands, transport corridors, urban greenspace, industrialised agriculture and fragments of ancient countryside. Evans weaves historical, cultural and literary references into his writing, ranging from TS Eliot to Bridget Riley, from Hieronymus Bosch to Napoleon.

Join Paul Evans for a talk at Shrewsbury Literary Festival, where he will share his nature observations and talk about writing the book. Visitors will also get the opportunity to buy a signed copy of the book.

Paul Evans is a nature writer, Guardian Country Diarist, poet, broadcaster, journalist and senior lecturer in creative writing at Manchester Metropolitan University. He broadcasts regularly for Radio 4 nature programmes.
