Last week was such a proud moment. Waiting patiently to speak to the packed audience inside the heart of literary London, my co-author, Isabel Oakeshott, and I were taking part in a live interview and discussion about Farmageddon at the prestigious Bloomsbury Institute.
Billed as showcasing “contemporary thinking and new research”, the event gave us the opportunity to meet people from the Bloomsbury Book Club and talk to them about why we wrote the book and what we discovered during our travels. We follow in great literary company, with other authors invited to similar events including William Dalrymple, Elizabeth Gilbert and Margaret Atwood.
An engaged and lively audience, some of whom travelled from Somerset and Cambridgeshire to be with us, kept us talking well beyond the prescribed time.
Huge thanks to Bloomsbury Institute for hosting us and to Bill Swainson, our commissioning editor, for chairing the session.
