Robert Macfarlane: Landmarks - SOLD OUT

Tuesday 3rd March 2015 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

SOLD OUT

Award-winning travel writer Robert Macfarlane - author of The Old Ways, The Wild Places, Holloway and Mountains of the Mind - returns to the top of your reading list this spring with Landmarks, an enthralling journey through language and nature, and the relationships between the two.

Celebrating the publication of his latest work, Macfarlane pays a visit to the Auditorium at Foyles to recount his investigation into how language shapes our sense of place, and to take us on a journey through the history and terrains of the literature of landscape. From 'blonking' to 'smeuse', 'crizzle' and 'af'rug', he will also introduce us to place-words from the glossaries of Landmarks, which gather words from twenty languages and dialects for aspects of place, weather and land, collected by Macfarlane over the past decade of reflective wayfaring.

One of our greatest contemporary travel writers, Macfarlane is also a renowned speaker, and broadcaster on television and radio, who has helped adapt several of his books for film.

This is an opportunity to hear a captivating speaker and genuine wordsmith at work as he elucidates upon our relationship with the world around us, be it near or far.

A complimentary drink will be available to ticket-holders on the evening.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Tickets: SOLD OUT
