Wednesday 15 November 2023, 7 – 9pm

Lucas Vale School, SE8 4QF

Part 1: Open Meeting, 7pm 
Speaker: C. J. Schüler. A talk (and questions) by the author of The Wood That Built London: A Human History of the Great North Wood.
Drawing on historic documents, maps and environmental evidence, the book charts the fortunes of the Great North Wood that once covered much of what is now South London, stretching from Brockley to Croydon: its ecology, ownership and management, the gradual encroachment of the metropolis, and the battles fought by locals and the London Wildlife Trust to save what remained. 
C.J. Schüler is the author of numerous books including three illustrated histories of cartography. He has also written on literature, travel and the arts for The Independent, The Independent on Sunday, The Tablet, The Financial Times and New Statesman. He was chairman of the Authors’ Club from 2008 to 2015.
