Walk and meet with Long Litt Woon, author of The Way Through the Woods.
When Woon loses her husband of 32 years to an unexpected death, she is utterly bereft. An immigrant in his country, in losing the love of her life she has also lost her compass and her passport to society. For a time, she is stuck, aimless, disoriented. It is only when she wanders off deep into the woods with mushroom hunters and is taught there how to see clearly what is all around her, and learn how to make distinctions, take educated risks and hear all the different melodies in Nature’s chorus, that she returns to life and to living.
‘Anyone with an interest in the natural world will delight in Long's sharp-eyed descriptions (and line drawings) of fungi and her therapeutic rambles through Norwegian woods. A wonder-inducing dive into the unique kingdom of fungi.’ Kirkus
Tickets are priced at £17.00 which includes a hard back copy of the book, which Woon will sign for you on the day. For those of you that already own a copy ticket price is £10.00
