Join renowned art historian and Somerset author Amy Jeffs for a walk, talk in the woods of Dulverton.

Amy’s gift for creating books that make medieval texts, myth, and folklore accessible to all has ensured a wide readership of all ages. Both Storyland, Wild, and her most recent publication, Saints, are accompanied by her distinctive illustrations underpinning her skills as storyteller and talented printmaker. This promises to be an enlightening afternoon celebrating the links between our landscape with myth and folklore, and the stories that enchanted Medieval audiences for centuries - tales that embrace the darkness of their heroes: women who communed with geese, saints whose decapitated heads spoke to wolves… For those unable to join the walk Amy will be chatting and signing books by the fireside at Seven Fables from 11am – 12pm.

‘Reading Wild feels like being led by the hand through a gnarled, old growth forest, along empty shoreflats, and along the edge of windswept cliffs - and shown how to experience them through medieval eyes. It's a jewel of a book.’ Natalie Lawrence.

A level of walking fitness is required, please dress appropriately, and do bring a blanket or cushion to sit on - we walk in all weathers.  (Age Recommendation 9+) SORRY NO DOGS ON THIS SPECIAL EVENT.
