"The Salt Path" with author Raynor Winn

Raynor Winn is the author of the Sunday Times bestseller 'The Salt Path' which was shortlisted for the both the 2018 Costa Biography Award and the Wainwright Book Prize.

It is the uplifting true story of the couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.

 'A beautiful, thoughtful, lyrical story of homelessness, human strength and endurance' Guardian

Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood.

With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.

Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

'The Salt Path' is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.

For fans of 'The Salt Path' and Raynor's amazing story and for those who have yet to hear this remarkable adventure, join us for an evening of fascinating insights into a moving and uplifting story.
