“Ravens’ Nests & Spring Tides” – writing about place and nature in Iceland and the Isle of Man
Author talk by Dr Sarah Thomas and Dr Fiona Gell
Wednesday 19 April 7.30pm
Authors Sarah Thomas and Fiona Gell have written about two very different places – Iceland’s Westfjords and the underwater world around the Isle of Man – but their writing has captured the landscapes, nature and heritage that have shaped their own stories.
From the cultural importance of herring to the magic of seals, there are many links between the two books and the two spellbinding places. In this unique event, Sarah and Fiona will read from their recently published books and talk about everything from fishing and seabirds to geology and some of the more unusual traditions they have encountered.
Copies of the books will be available to buy during the evening and if you’ve already read one or both of the books, there will be also be a Q&A session so you can find out more.
