The Light in The Dark: A Winter Journal with Horatio Clare
As the nights draw in, what could be a greater pleasure than settling down with a mulled wine in the company of the wonderful travel and nature writer Horatio Clare, to see and celebrate winter in all its shadows and lights. We will raise a torch against the darkness, illuminating the blackest corners of the season, and delving into memory and myth to explore the powerful hold that winter has on us. Followed by a book signing.
