About the event
Celebrate the arrival of spring with writer and editor Katharine Norbury.
This anthology gathers the voices of women from the fourteenth to the twenty-first centuries whose subject is the natural world in Britain, Ireland and the outlying islands of our archipelago. Alongside the traditional forms of the travelogue, the walking guide, books on birds, plants and wildlife, Women on Nature embraces alternative modes of seeing and recording that turn the genre on its head.
Women on Nature presents a fresh vision of the natural world and is of unique importance in terms of women's history and the history of writing about nature.
Many of the authors featured in this beautiful anthology have written books that our Walking Book Club has read and enjoyed over the years, including Kitty Aldridge, Kathleen Jamie and Helen Macdonald.
