Women and Nature Bookclub: November (online) - with author Raynor Winn | Thursday, 19. November 2020

A book club to celebrate the power of women connecting with nature!

About this Event

Join us each month for stimulating and nurturing discussion of books focussing on women and nature.

*** Our book club will also exist in ****-to-**** form once it's appropriate to do so. Updates to follow ***

Our November book is...

The Wild Silence by Raynor Winn

** Raynor will be joining us for discussion and Q&A. We LOVED her being with us to discuss The Salt Path in April and are so pleased she's coming back to discuss her new book! **

Recovering self-esteem and trust, in herself and in others, is harder than she expected. Raynor and her husband Moth continue to **** his debilitating illness, until an incredible gesture by someone who read The Salt Path changes everything.

This book is about readjusting to life after homelessness, but also about recovering trust and self-belief after a traumatic event - feelings that can translate to many episodes in the life of any of us.

Note from Rowena: I am SO excited to read this book, and have it on pre-order. What a privilege that Raynor will be joining us again, this time to hear your feedback and answer your questions about her new book.
