Join Essex Book Festival at Hylands Estate for a day of author events under the banner of Restless Brilliance.

Linking up with our J.A. Baker exhibition, which runs until 3 November, the focus will be on all things nature and ornithology.

Events include a talk with celebrated nature writer, Mark Cocker, about his book One Midsummer’s Day: Swifts and The Story of Life on Earth, and a chat with Joanna Glen discussing her newest novel Maybe, Perhaps, Possibly.
