Writing Animals - An Evening with Writer in Residence Susanna Forrest

19th February - 19th February 2019



8pm

The role of animals in human society is a topic of increasing significance. Join Susanna Forrest – author of The Age of the Horse (2016) – as she explores the challenges of doing animals justice in contemporary non-fiction. In what promises to be a unique hour, Susanna will show how her own particular field – equine culture and history – has much to teach us about history, literature, anthropology, philosophy, and even food. Not just for horse-lovers and not to be missed!

Susanna Forrest is an author, journalist, essayist and teacher. Susanna writes creative non-fiction on equine culture, a subject that took her across the world, including Mongolia. She published her first book, If Wishes Were Horses, in 2012, following with The Age of the Horse: an Equine Journey Through Human History (2016), an extraordinary achievement of research, travel, and writing which uses horses to tell the story of our own human history. The Times called her ‘the outstanding writer at the erudite end of horse madness’ and Waterstone’s named her book one of the Best Countryside and Nature books in 2016.
