The Leeds Library

18 Commercial Street, Leeds, LS1 6AL

As part of Leeds Lit Fest 2019

Take time out of your busy day! Come along and hear writer  Richard Smyth talk about nature writing. Why do we love nature books so much? How is it that nature on the page has such power to excite, entrance and inspire us? Nature writing in English has a long history, and has taken many forms over the centuries. Today the field is as vibrantly crowded as ever. In this talk, Richard will take a wander through Britain's wild writing heritage, asking why nature-writing matters, who gets to write it, and where does it go from here?
