A Journey to the Ends of the Earth: An Evening with Dan Richards

Thursday 21st November 18:00 - 19:30 at Cambridge

Waterstones Cambridge are delighted to welcome acclaimed writer Dan Richards to discuss his new book Outpost, an exploration of of far-flung outposts in mountains, tundra, forests, oceans and deserts.

Following a route from the Cairngorms of Scotland to the fire-watching huts of Washington State, from a Mars base in the desert of New Mexico to the frozen beauty of Svalbard, Dan Richards uncovers landscapes which have inspired writers, artists and musicians, and asks: why are we drawn to wilderness? How do wild places become a space for inspiration and creativity? What can be done to preserve and protect such places?

Dan Richards is a non-fiction writer specialising in art, travel and adventure. His first book, Holloway – co-authored with Robert Macfarlane and illustrated by Stanley Donwood – was published by Faber in 2013, became a Sunday Times bestseller and has been translated into several languages.

He will be in conversation with Rowan Pelling, a British journalist, broadcaster, writer and editor / ‘editrice’ of The Amorist and The Erotic Review.
