Launch of ‘On the Marshes’

April 5 @ 7:00 pm

The launch of Carol Donaldson’s ‘On the Marshes’.

In 2014, Carol Donaldson set off on a walk across the marshes on north Kent, from Gravesend to Whitstable. Both an act of pilgrimage for a landscape she loves and a journey of discovery into why people are drawn to live there, Carol meets and stays with the houseboat owners and caravan dwellers, the hermits who live in the woods and those who choose to die in these remote, liminal lands. ‘On the Marshes’ brings us an original voice and a book for our times. Evoking the landscape and atmosphere of a marginalised corner of England, Carol writes from her own experience and weaves her story of alienation with those who have made the marshes their home. Along the way, she never shies away from confronting the issues of cultural conflict so pertinent today, between marsh-dwellers and corporate England, between private ownership and conservation, between one way of living and another.

This is a private launch, by invitation only. To ask about a ticket please email books@littletoller.co.uk. Press enquiries: please email jon@littletoller.co.uk
