Emily's Walking Book Club Thursday 5th September 2019
Join writer Emily Rhodes for a literary walk through the beautiful English countryside, while discussing Laurie Lee's evocative memoir of his Cotswold childhood, Cider with Rosie on Thursday 5th September 2019.
Cider with Rosie is a vivid realisation of a now-vanished world of tradition and community - where school children carry their lunches in buckets, and local folk make potent wine from whatever they find in the fields. Lee's gorgeous, languid prose beautifully captures the rural idyll of his childhood, while he doesn't shy away from the tougher side of domestic toil and poverty. We will walk through the stunning Cotswold countryside described in the book, while Emily leads a discussion, and then return to the Lygon Arms Hotel for a delicious afternoon tea.
