Roger Deakin – A Life to Come

Venue: The Corn Hall

TICKETS FOR THE LIVESTREAM RECORDING ARE STILL AVAILABLE. 

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO VIEW UNTIL MIDNIGHT SATURDAY 3RD OCTOBER – SEE BELOW

Roger Deakin, local writer (Waterlog, Wildwood), environmentalist and film-maker, died 14 years ago; but his reputation and legacy have burgeoned since. And soon the biography. Its author is Patrick Barkham, himself one of the naturalists and writers who have flourished since Deakin. Patrick Barklham writes regularly for the Guardian and is the author of IslanderBadgerlandButterfly Isles and most recently Wise Child. He lives in Norfolk. He will talk about the book he is now working on – and perhaps hear from those who knew Roger.

Patrick will be in conversation with Titus Rowlandson, who lives in Roger’s famous timber-framed house and is the author of Life at Walnut Tree Farm. Chairing the event will be Terence Blacker, a local friend of Roger and co-editor of his posthumous diaries, Notes from Walnut Tree Farm.

Approx 1hr 10mins incl Q&A and book signing. NB The time has reduced to reflect the fact that there will now not be an interval and that we will have a shorter Q&A period.

Highly entertaining...Waterlog is a book about a cold, wet subject written with a warmth and passion it surely deserves, but has rarely had before.
