THE COW BOOK: A Reading by John Connell

Join bestselling author, journalist and filmmaker John Connell in The Book Centre, where he will share his stories of the hypnotic rhythm of the farming day - cleaning the outhouses, milking the herd, tending to sickly lambs, helping the cows give birth. Alongside the routine events, there are also the unforeseen moments when things go wrong: when a calf fails to thrive, when illness breaks out, when depression takes hold, when an argument erupts and things are said that cannot be unsaid.

The Cow Book is a story of the calving season, of our history with the cow and above all else of Connell’s life as a farmer and his relationship with his father, whose footsteps he now follows in.
