Clare Balding Book Signing – The Isle of Dogs: A Canine History of Britain

4 December, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us in the Hungerford Bookshop at 1pm on Monday the 4th of December where Clare Balding will be signing copies of her new book The Isle of Dogs: A Canine History of Britain.

In this book Clare celebrates the British love of dogs. We love them as members of the family. They work with us, sleep with us, eat with us, help us live our daily lives and come on holiday with us. Some parents will freely admit to enjoying the company of their dogs more than their children while many couples would choose the dog over their partner.

So what is it that makes our bond so special?In this fascinating adventure across Britain, Clare Balding explores the many roles dogs fulfil and the history of how they became such an intrinsic part of our lives. She talks to people whose everyday survival depends on their dog, those whose experience of life has been transformed by them and what dogs have meant to her. From the mysteries of extinct breeds to the ancient dogs still thriving today, she journeys from Battersea to the Orkney Islands via Buckingham Palace to tell a moving and humorous tale of loyalty and partnership.
