Christopher Somerville Returns to Cirencester!

Thursday 21st October 2021
19:00 at Waterstones, Cirencester

Join us for a talk with the wonderful Christopher Somerville when he’ll be talking about his new book, The View from the Hill
 
In Christopher Somerville's workroom is a case of shelves that holds 450 notebooks. Their pages are creased and stained with mud, blood, flattened insect corpses, beer glass rings, smears of plant juice and gallons of sweat. Everything Somerville has written about walking the British countryside has had its origin among these little black-and-red books. During the lockdowns and enforced idleness of the Covid-19 pandemic, Somerville began to revisit this rough treasury of notes, spanning forty years of exploring these islands on foot.
