with Alastair Jackson

Meet the Author: Alastair Jackson, MFH
Wednesday, September 19, 6-7:30pm

Join NSLM and retired Director of the British Masters of Foxhounds Association Alastair Jackson for a presentation on his newest publication, Lady of the Chase, The Life and Hunting Diaries of Daphne Moore

About Daphne Moore:

"Daphne Moore is known to many in the hounds fraternity for her expert reports in Horse and Hound magazine over many decades. Aristocratically turned out and well-spoken, her appearance belied her circumstances. She lived on a shoe-string off her reporting, followed the pack on foot and in her younger days even cycled many miles to get there and back. Remarkably, after producing a professional report of each days' hunting, she then turned to writing up - and illustrating in charming watercolours - her own diaries."

$10 admission, free to NSLM members and MFHA members. Copies available for purchase at the event. RSVP to Anne Marie Paquette, the Clarice & Robert H. Smith Educator, APaquette@NationalSporting.org, 540 687 6542x25
