Jay is keenly interested in indigenous thought. She challenges the intellectual apartheid of the dominant global culture arguing that wild land is intrinsic to the health of the human mind. Her story will also take us into the uncharted lands of the wild mind, exploring the words and meanings and ideas of the wild: her book, passionate, political and provocative, is a manifesto for the essential need for wildness for the human spirit.
"Wild is precisely the right name for this book - it goes deeper into the experience of actually living on our home planet than almost any book I've ever read.’ – Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature
“A book of staggering power, honesty and wit” – BBC Wildlife Magazine
Signed copies of Wild will be available for purchase on the night.
We do hope you can make it.
