About the event
Writers Talk at ZSL London Zoo - Ruth Padel on hummingbird, bleeding heart dove and amethyst starling. ZSL conservation scientists and keepers team up with leading writers to talk about the animals in ZSL London Zoo. Alongside the animals, the writers speak imaginatively about their responses to them and ZSL’s experts talk about their ecology and conservation. The audience will be able to ask questions of author, scientist and keeper and have books signed over a glass of wine. Ruth Padel is a British poet and writer with close connections to conservation, wildlife, Greece and music. These unique evenings will be held within the animal houses of London Zoo. Tickets £12.
