The Guardian: ‘England hath need of thee’: appeal to save Milton’s Paradise Lost cottage

Chalfont St Giles & Jordans Literary Festival
10th – 22nd May 2022
We’re delighted to be part of our local literary festival once again, hosting author Will Carver on Monday 16th May, from 7pm – discussing The Nature of Evil in the very place where Milton conjured up his Satanic anti-hero of Paradise Lost.  Will is in conversation with local authors Paul Waters and Stevyn Colgyn as part of their podcast We’d Like a Word.
We’re also delighted to welcome Joe Moshenska to Chalfont St Giles on Thursday 19th May, from 8pm, when he’ll be discussing his acclaimed new biography Making Darkness Light: the Lives and Times of John Milton.  Tickets can be booked from the Literary Festival website:
