Happily Ever After

From Gawain to Grimm, Shakespeare’s Arden to Boorman’s Deliverance, forests have provided some of the most evocative backdrops in all of literature, art and film. Join us for a discussion about the particular ways that writers, directors and artists have used this unique setting.

Chairing the discussion will be Lindsey Chapman, presenter of Springwatch Unsprung on BBC Two, and joining her will be the author of Gossip in the Forest, Sara Maitland, poet Karen McCarthy Wolf and storyteller, Ian Douglas.
