City Books present an evening with Kate Humble to launch her superb new book Humble By Nature.

In 2010, television presenter Kate Humble learned that a nearby farm in the Wye Valley where she had lived for three years was set to be sold off. Kate contacted the local council with an alternative plan; to keep the farm a working farm. What follows is a highly personal account of Kate’s move from a London house with 20 square feet of garden, to a Welsh smallholding with four acres, to becoming the owner of a farm with 117 acres of land! Humble by Nature is the story of two people prepared to follow their hearts and save a small part of British farming heritage, whatever the consequences.

The evening will include a book reading, Q&A, and book signing, with her new book on sale for a £4 discount.
