Faber Members is delighted to present a very special evening with Jenny Uglow, to celebrate the publication of Mr Lear: A Life of Art and Nonsense. A genius of nonsense, Edward Lear was also a fine artist and a lifelong traveller. Join us at Faber & Faber's Bloomsbury House for this special launch event where Jenny will be in discussion about Lear's extraordinary life and work. Jenny Uglow 's books include prize-winning biographies of Elizabeth Gaskell, William Hogarth and Sarah Losh. The Lunar Men, published in 2002, was described by Richard Holmes as 'an extraordinarily gripping account', while Nature's Engraver: A Life of Thomas Bewick, won the National Arts Writers Award and A Gambling Man: Charles II and the Restoration was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize.
