Tues 23rd Nov: Lev Parikian - A British Year Through Japan's 72 Seasons
Join Lev Parikian (bird-watcher, nature writer and conductor) as he discusses his wonderful new book, Light Rains Sometimes Fall: A British Year through Japanís 72 Seasons. By turns reflective, witty and joyous, this is both a nature diary and a revelation of the beauty of the small and subtle changes of the everyday.
He adopts the structure of the traditional Japanese calendar with its 72 micro-seasons. He charts the changes that each of these ancient microseasons (of a just a few days each) bring to his local South London patch - from the birds nesting in his garden on Knights Hill to the woods at the top of Streatham Common and the foxes of West Norwood Cemetery.

Time: 19.00 Ė 20.30
