Anita Sethi: I Belong Here

Nairn Community & Arts Centre,
31 Aug – 31 Aug

Anita Sethi was born in Manchester, where her love of nature first flourished, in wild urban spaces. She is author of I Belong Here: a Journey Along the Backbone of Britain – described as “a memoir of rare power” by the Guardian, and “an amazing odyssey: inspiring, powerful, encouraging and incredibly brave” by the Independent. The Sunday Times review wrote: “punchier and more political than most nature writing, this book is a thing of beauty”. I Belong Here won a Books Are My Bag Readers Award, and was nominated for the Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing, Portico, Royal Society of Literature’s Ondaatje Prize and Great Outdoors Award. Her writing has also appeared in anthologies including Women on Nature, The Wild Isles, Seasons and Common People. She has written for the Guardian, Observer, i, Sunday Times, Telegraph, Vogue, TLS, and BBC Wildlife. She is the festival’s first ever author-in-residence.
