Weatherland – Alexandra Harris
October 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$8
Alexandra Harris builds her remarkable account from small evocative details and catches the distinct voices of compelling individuals.
Her latest book, Weatherland, is an exploration of imaginative responses to the weather of England across centuries. “I wanted to lie on the grass and watch the sky with Chaucer, Milton and Turner.” Join her in weather-watching with our best writers and artists.
Alexandra is Professor of English at the University of Birmingham, a literary critic, cultural historian and self-confessed lover of buildings, landscapes, seasons and stories. She wrote the much-acclaimed Romantic Moderns, tracing connections between the artists and writers of the early twentieth century.
