Madeleine Bunting

MADELEINE BUNTING – on the biography of an English acre.

Where do you live, and work?

What does it mean to own a place?

What does it mean to work it?

Where do you belong and what belongs to you?

Madeleine Bunting, author and leading columnist for The Guardian, looked closely at an acre of land in the middle of nowhere, which had been her father’s home.

The result is The Plot, her latest book, which not only paints a particular portrait of England but also addresses questions of belonging, and discovers that real and valued ownership may well be more about time, life, and commitment than simple possession.

Tickets - £12 (includes great pub lunch and great author talk)


Presented in association with Helen Browning’s prize-winning Eastbrook Organic Farm.
