Darkling: The Owl’s Song

A painting of an owl
Book Signing with Catherine Hyde.

We are delighted that Catherine is returning to Seven Fables this September to celebrate the publication of Darkling: The Owl’s Song. This much anticipated title follows in the footsteps of her much-loved previous books, The Bee and the Sun, and The Moon and the Hare.

Catherine describes the paintings created for Darkling as night poems - exploring the transition of dusk into night as the light sinks and colour drains into darkness. With moonrise the woodland is transformed into another landscape of contrast and pattern where uncertain shadows suggest deeper spaces.

Catherine’s signature animals hare, barn owl and deer are joined by rook, fox, otter and badger and most particularly by the tawny owl who sits and watches, who sits and listens, and calls twilight to him.

Catherine will be reading, painting, signing books and chatting ‘in the kitchen’ at Seven fables throughout the day, do join us.
