Festival talks by John Lewis-Stempel

5. WHERE POPPIES BLOW

John Lewis-Stempel is both a farmer and one of our finest writers about nature and our relationship with the land. In this fascinating and thought-provoking talk, he will discuss the importance of nature and landscape, especially birds and animals, to the British soldiers fighting on the Western Front, and how their endurance amidst the carnage was a source of both solace and hope.
