Event Description

Award-winning author Wyl Menmuir’s first venture into full-length, non-fiction, The Draw of the Sea, won the Roger Deakin Award from the Society of Authors. The ocean fires our imagination, provides joy, solace and play but also wields immense destructive power. The book explores communities whose lives revolve around the coasts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. In the specifics of these livelihoods and their rich histories and traditions, Wyl captures the universal human connection to the sea and interweaves the story of how the sea has beckoned, consoled and restored him.
