TLF TALK Footnotes: A Journey Around Britain in the Company of Great Writers – Peter FiennesEvent Website
TAUNTON LITERARY FESTIVAL.
Peter Fiennes follows in the footsteps of writers, spiritualists, economists, farmers, churchmen and artists, from the eleventh century to the twentieth. Traversing past and present, he searches for signs of what his absent guides once saw and, through their words, opens up a new way of seeing what is there today. Footnotes is full of wonders and wanders, old stories and fresh connections, worn roads and wild places. It is a mesmerising quest to picture these isles anew.
PETER FIENNES is the author of Oak and Ash and Thorn (Oneworld) a Guardian Best Nature Book of the Year. As a publisher for Time Out, he published their city guides, as well as books about Britain’s countryside and seaside.
