Dave Goulson  Bee Quest

The much-loved Sunday Times bestselling, Samuel Johnson Prize-shortlisted author goes on a hunt for bumblebees, taking us from the Salisbury Plain to Sussex hedgerows, from Poland to Patagonia. This charming book will inspire you to think about the ways in which we are all responsible for the future of our world. Through his scientific expertise and passion for conservation Goulson shows us nature's resilience against the odds, and that beauty hides in the most surprising places.

Dave Goulson studied biology at Oxford University and is now Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sussex. Bumblebees are his passion - he has published over 250 articles on their biology, and founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust in 2006.

    Feedback From 2016 Festival

  • I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

  • Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.

  • Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
