James Rebanks: How to (try to) be a good farmer: online talk
November 15, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
James Rebanks is a farmer and critically acclaimed author who lives and works in the Lake District.
His two bestselling books about his farming life – The Shepherd’s Life and English Pastoral – have been translated in to many languages and have won a number of literary awards including the Wainwright Prize, the Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year and the Sunday Times Memoir of the Year and Nature Book of the Year, and have been shortlisted for the Ondaatje Prize and the Orwell Prize. English Pastoral was described by Melvyn Bragg as ‘masterpiece’ and by Wendell Berry as ‘just about perfect’.
In this lecture he will tell the story of what his land has taught him about farming with nature, and how we must strive to reconcile all our different needs from the British landscape.
