An Evening with Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris

19:00 at The Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PW
From Acorn to Weasel: a gorgeous, hand-illustrated, large format spellbook celebrating the magic and wonder of the natural world.
All over the country thee are words disappearing from children's lives. Words like Dandelion, Otter, Bramble, Acorn and Lark represent the natural world of childhood, a rich landscape of discovery and imagination that is fading from children's minds.
The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of the poetry of nature words and the living glory of our distinctive, British countryside. With acrostic spell-poems by peerless wordsmith Robert MacFarlane and hand-painted illustrations by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
