Monday July 4th: Anna Pavord on Landskipping: Painters, Ploughman and Places in association with HADCAF


On Monday 4th July at 2.30pm the Hungerford Bookshop welcomes the author of the international best-seller ‘The Tulip’. Anna Pavord will be talking about her latest book,‘Landskipping’, a ravishing celebration of landscape, its iridescent beauty and its potential to comfort, awe and mesmerise.

landskippingAnna uses material from painters and writers inspired by landscape to explore the many different ways that land was managed and farmed, showing that what is universal is a place’s capacity to frame and define our experience. Moving from the rolling hills of Dorset to the peaks of the Scottish Highlands, this is an exquisite and compelling book, written with zest, passion and deep understanding.

Anna Pavord is the gardening correspondent for ‘The Independent’ and the author of widely praised gardening books. She wrote for ‘The Observer’ for twenty years, has contributed to ‘Country Life’, ‘Elle Decoration’ and is an associate editor of ‘Gardens Illustrated’.

Anna will be talking about her book before answering questions from the audience and signing copies which will be available to buy at the event.
