Saturday, 6 April 2019
Lincoln College: Oakeshott Room
Hear writer Lauren St John talk about her life and the animals she has known, about her writing and her campaigning work, and how it all links together. Be inspired about the changes you can make to the world and leave with a head full of great stories too.
St John grew up surrounded by animals on a farm and game reserve in Zimbabwe, the inspiration for her bestselling White Giraffe and One Dollar Horse series. At 17, she spent a year in the UK working as a veterinary nurse, and that experience fed into her new mystery series Kat Wolfe Investigates, about a pet-sitter who lives with her vet mum in idyllic Bluebell Bay on the Jurassic Coast. A passionate conservationist, St John is an ambassador for the Born Free Foundation and the founder of Authors4Oceans. Here she talks to wildlife journalist and editor Ben Hoare.
