Lara Maiklem has been mudlarking along the River Thames for fifteen years. Last year she released her first ever book “Mudlarking” in which she writes of her fascinating finds and experiences scavenging the local river banks. The book was met with critical acclaim going straight into the Sunday Times Best Sellers Top 10 and being chosen as Radio 4’s Book of The Week.
Since the release of the book Lara has appeared on BBC Breakfast, as well as being a guest on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and now she is coming to Tidefest 2019.
Lara will be signing copies of the book between 12.30pm and 1.30pm at Strand-On-The-Green. In celebration of Tidefest copies of “Mudlarking” will be available to buy for a discounted price of £15.99 instead of the RRP of £18.99. Lara’s book is the perfect way to learn about mudlarking and speculate on the fascinating finds that the author has unearthed along the banks of the Thames over the years.
Tidefest is being held on September 8 2019 so be sure to head down, grab yourself a bargain and meet London’s famous mudlarker.
