Islander
Patrick Barkham's new book, Islander, is a journey to meet the human and non-human residents of the smaller British Isles. In this talk, he will journey from large small island to ever smaller islands in search of the essence of island life - and what lessons the periphery may have for us on the mainland.

An evening with Patrick Barkham
Join us for an evening of natural wonder as Patrick Barkham discusses his newest work 'Islander'. He explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain as he travels to ever-smaller islands in search of their special magic. Our small islands are both places of freedom and imprisonment, party destinations and oases of peace, strangely suburban and deeply wild. They are places where the past is unusually present, but they can also offer a vision of an alternative future. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from local legends to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is like to live on a small island, and what it means to be an islander.
