Author Gabriel Hemery will be talking about The New Sylva at the Surrey History Centre in Woking at 1430 on 4th October. The centre is just 14 miles from the John Evelyn’s birthplace at Wotton House.
Gabriel’s talk will be illustrated with the exquisite drawings of artist Sarah Simblet. An exhibition about John Evelyn’s work will be on show alongside Evelyn’s letters, diaries and copies of Sylva which are now in the care of Surrey History Centre.
Bloomsbury, the publisher of The New Sylva, has kindly donated a copy of the book to be given away to one lucky member of the audience at the event on 4 October. Signed copies will be available to purchase.
