Wednesday 5th July 2023
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Raynor Winn is a regular long-distance walker who writes about nature, homelessness and our relationship to the land. In her latest book, Landlines, she recounts her most ambitious journey yet, as she and her husband Moth walk 1,000 miles from the north-west corner of Scotland to the south coast of Cornwall. Will nature once again work its magic on Moth’s declining health? Raynor recalls the strangers and friends, the wilderness and the wildlife that they encountered on this journey of hope. Raynor’s ﬁrst book, The Salt Path, became an international bestseller, won the Royal Society of Literature Christopher Bland Prize 2018 and has been optioned for a ﬁlm. The Wild Silence was shortlisted for the 2021 Indie Book Awards and the 2021 Wainwright Prize.
