Merlin Sheldrake, Entangled Life

Talks + Stroud Book Festival
Merlin Sheldrake, Entangled Life
The more we learn about fungi, the less makes sense without them 

Join biologist, musician and keen fermenter Merlin Sheldrake as he presents a mind-altering exploration of the world of fungi, based on his bestselling and revelatory book, “Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures”.  Along the way, we will discover how fungi can solve problems without a brain, digest plastic and other human messes, manipulate animal behaviour in extraordinary ways, and connect extensive networks of other living things; as well as giving us bread, alcohol and life-saving medicines.
