Simon furthermore introduces audiences to one of history’s hidden treasures: The Owl and the Nightingale, a gem of medieval English literature which Simon has translated and made accessible to a modern audience. Don’t miss this lovely event, which will leave you sensitive to poetic beauty brimming all around us in the natural world.
