An Evening with Patrick Barkham

Book Dept, lower ground floor @ 6.30pm | 19th October 2017

We are delighted to welcome award-winning author, Guardian columnist and Norfolk lad Patrick Barkham to talk about his new book Islander, a fascinating and evocative exploration of Britain’s smallest islands (Scolt Head has to be one of them, doesn’t it?).

Patrick is the best-selling author of The Butterfly Isles, Coastlines: The Story Of Our Shore and the East Anglian Book Awards winner Badgerlands.

Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, dropouts to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is to be an islander, and uncovers bizarre and touching stories about island life, whilst exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain. We are huge fans of Patrick’s writing and are delighted to welcome him to the store.

Tickets are £7 and available from Customer services, floor 2 or click here

(Includes a glass of wine and £5 off when you purchase the book on the evening)
