Ten Birds That Changed the World
Literary Lunch Event
Finishes at: Friday 03 November 3:00 PM
The human race has lived side by side with birds since the very beginning. We have venerated birds throughout history; yet we have also exploited them. We have used some as an inspiration for art and music; yet we have driven others to extinction.
Stephen Moss, local resident and President of the Somerset Wildlife Trust, knows more about the birds of the world than most, and shares this expertise in a fascinating and engaging way. Selecting ten species from all seven continents he brings a new and illuminating understanding to these wonderful creatures with whom we share our world.
Right from Odin’s mythical raven through to that potent symbol of today, the magnificent Emperor penguin: where would we be without our feathered friends?
Tickets can be purchased to just the talk or the talk and the Literary Lunch.
