Has concern for our threatened environment led to a golden age of writing about the natural world? Melissa Harrison’s novel All Among the Barley is set is Suffolk, where she now lives. It mixes vivid descriptions of nature with a powerful intertwining narrative about the rise of rural fascism in the 1930s.

“Brilliant and timely” (Robert Macfarlane).

Isabella Tree’s Wilding tells the story of a remarkable experiment, the re-wilding of the Knepp Estate in West Sussex and the stunning recovery of flora and fauna.

“A poignant, practical and moving story of how to fix our broken land” (Chris Packham).

Chaired by Suzanne Joinson, novelist, lecturer and Fellow of the Museum of English Rural Life.
