Walk Guides: Lizzi Kew Ross, Meg Saundersall , Mary Ann Hushlak & Rector Oliver Ross, Trinity Laban
Duration: about 1 hour
In Walking and Talking Books walk participants will discuss one of series of books while walking through a number of interconnected routes in the City of London. The idea is based on an upcoming dance performance piece, Reading with Bach, which is inspired by observing people reading as they walk and read through the city. The books and their subjects that will form the starting points for these conversations include: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel on Thomas Cromwell; Hare with the Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal on the collection of objects and Edgelands: Journeys into England’s True Wildness by Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts on the contrasts of urban space and our ideas of wilderness.
Attendees are invited to bring along their own copy of the book they wish to walk with (if possible).
Meg Saundersall will be leading Edgelands
Rector Oliver Ross -Wolf Hall
Mary Ann Hushlak & Lizzi Kew Ross -Hare with Amber Eyes.
The walk will end at The Museum of London for tea.
