WALKING BOOK CLUB:
Dark Skies: A Journey into the Wild Night by Tiffany Francis-Baker
A wonderful winter read for you all...
Life is certainly in flux at present and so we have decided not to meet and walk this month, however we hope you will still enjoy delving into the pages of our selected title.
Darkness has shaped the lives of humans for millennia. . .
In Dark Skies, Tiffany sets out to discover humanity's connection to the night sky, travelling through different night-scapes in the UK and beyond. She hikes through the haunted yew forests of Kingley Vale and embarks on a nocturnal sail down the River Dart. She speaks to communities who live in darkness for three months each year, experiences 24-hour daylight while swimming in the Gulf of Finland, and no book about the night sky would be complete without experiencing the Northern Lights first hand.
We visualise you all curled up on a dark autumnal evening lost in the pages of Tiffany's writing.
Copies of the book are priced at £10.00 (rrp £10.99) and we are offering free carriage to customers based in the UK. Call 01398 324457 during our opening hours to order your copy

Tiffany Francis-Baker has gone into the last dark continent, the night, and brought back
wondrous tales with starlight in her pen.
Rich in literary references, Dark Skies is also rippled through with memoir..
it's a warmly personal narrative.
