Meet Stephen Rutt
Saturday 25th May 16:00 at St Andrews
In 2015, Stephen Rutt escaped his hectic, anxiety-inducing life in London for the bird observatory on North Ronaldsay, the most northerly of the Orkney Islands.
In thrall to these windswept havens and the people and birds that inhabit them, he explores the part seabirds have played in our history and what they continue to mean to Britain today.; The Seafarers is the story of those travels: a love letter, written from the rocks and the edges, for the salt-stained, isolated and ever-changing lives of seabirds.
This beguiling book reveals what it feels like to be immersed in a completely wild landscape, examining the allure of the remote in an over-crowded world.
Stephen will be in conversation with Robin A. Crawford, author of Into the Peatlands.
