Recent addition to Connaught Village, Phlox Books, will be having the next event at their pop-up shop this Thursday 24th. The event will commence with a drinks reception and continue with talks from 2 authors:
Alice Vincent – Alice Vincent is an author and gardener, who has worked as a journalist for the past decade. Her books include Rootbound, How to Grow Stuff and Seeds from Scratch and is currently working on another, Why Women Grow. A columnist for The New Statesman, Alice has written for The Observer, Vogue, The Guardian and other titles. An inner-city gardener, she has always believed that you don’t need a garden to garden organically, having taught herself to garden on balconies and in community gardens in South London. For the past five years, she has shared her green adventures through her Instagram account, Noughticulture and newsletter, also called noughticulture.
Tabitha Lasley – In her mid-30s and newly free from a terrible relationship, Tabitha Lasley quit her job at a London magazine, packed her bags, and poured her savings into a six-month lease on an apartment in Aberdeen, Scotland. She decided to make good on a long-deferred idea for a book about oil rigs and the men who work on them. Why oil rigs? She wanted to see what men were like with no women around. In Aberdeen, Tabitha became deeply entrenched in the world of roughnecks, a teeming subculture rich with brawls, hard labour and competition. The longer she stayed, the more she found that her presence had a destabilizing effect on the men – and her.
The event will begin at 7.30pm with a drinks reception and the talks will commence at 8pm.
