The Social welcomes back Faber Social, a monthly evening of stories, music and performance – this month in association with Caught by the River
On Monday July 2nd the Faber Social celebrates nature writing – and the nature of writing.
Will Atkins takes us through wild terrain, discussing the position of moorland in our literature, history and psyche. Author/photographer/angler Chris Yates describes a night-time journey deep into the heart of the British countryside. Robert Macfarlane reads from his book The Old Ways, exploring pathways, stories and ghosts, and also presents a new collaboration (which he worked on with Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood and writer-artist Dan Richards). Kirsty Gunn reads from The Big Music – a new work that is as much a landscape as a novel. We’re also joined by poet Alice Oswald, author of the T.S. Eliot Prize-winning Dart.
