Raynor Winn: The Salt Path
6:30pm - 7:30pm - Sunday 27 October
Shortlisted for the 2018 Costa Biography Award and the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize, The Salt Path is one of those unpredictable publishing successes, defying categorisation but which readers press on each other.
Just days after the couple lose their home and their livelihood Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill. With almost no money for food or shelter and little time, their reaction to disaster and looming tragedy was to walk the length of the 630-mile, sea-swept South West Coast Path.
Their walk becomes a remarkable journey. The Salt Path is an unflinchingly honest, inspiring and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world.
