Writer and long-distance walker Raynor Winn will be in Beverley on Sunday, 20 October, to talk about her hugely popular book, ‘The Salt Path’, as part of the East Riding Festival of Words 2019.
When they lost their home and livelihood, just as her husband Moth was also diagnosed with a terminal illness, Raynor and Moth started walking. They impulsively decided to walk the 630 miles South West Coast Path, at a time in their lives when they seemed to have nothing left, and no time.
Living wild and free at the mercy of the sea and sky, they discovered a new and liberating existence on The Salt Path.
This is a tale of the impact of homelessness and the strength of the human spirit to endure.
Raynor will be at Beverley Art Gallery on Sunday, 20 October from 11am-12noon. She will be in conversation with Paul Hughes, an avid reader, published poet and library supervisor at North Bridlington Library.
The event is free, but booking is essential either at www.festivalofwords.co.uk or by calling 01482 392699.
