Finding W. Hudson – Online Talk with Conor Jameson

Join us for our very first online talk featuring Conor Jameson and his subject for the night: W. H Hudson.

  • The overdue, untold story of Hudson’s pioneering role as a campaigner, supporting the women who founded the RSPB.
  • New insights on the unschooled immigrant writer-naturalist who dared to challenge the establishment.
  • A timely and revelatory recognition of the extraordinary contribution of a once-revered and now neglected champion of early conservation.
  • The book: ‘Impeccably researched … sparkles with skilfully drawn portraits of Hudson’s female collaborators [and] such friends as “Don Roberto”. A creative blend of detective work and narrative intuition.’ Review in the Wall Street Journal, by Christoph Irmscher, Professor of English, Indiana University  
  • The talk: “That was brilliant! Absolutely fascinating. And a real revelation to me personally – As you say, what a life! Worthy of a BBC or Channel 4 documentary… Thank you so much on behalf of all of us!”
