WALKING BOOK CLUB:
2pm Saturday 20th June 2020 CANCELLED
The Grassling by Elizabeth-Jane Burnett
We have given it much consideration and decided to cancel this walk. We were hopeful that as groups of 6 were permitted to meet outside from the 1st June that this number may have been increased by the 20th but as it stands, we have a larger group booked and it would mean that not all who had booked would be able to attend. It is also the first Saturday back in the shop, and we naturally feel a little anxious. Of course we are disappointed but are hopeful that we will be back walking and talking books in the future.
If you would like to join us in the virtual world we will be discussing The Grassling
via our social media feeds at 2pm Saturday 20th June.

'A subtle, moving celebration of place and connectedness . . . brings the sounds, smells and sights of the countryside alive like few other books'
With a blend of poetry, memoir and a uniquely experimental, sensory style of nature writing, The Grassling celebrates the lusciousness of both land and language ... Ideas that might in a lesser writer have seemed whimsical are grounded by the rich layers of Burnett's prose.
A poetic, lyrical tribute to the earth beneath our feet . . . Burnett is one of the freshest voices in the current crop of nature writers
This astonishingly beautiful ode to the sights, sounds and smells of the countryside . . . [evokes] a richly immersive sense of the natural world and our place within it.
