Description

Come and spend an evening at Heffers with award-winning author Patrick Barkham, as he talks about his new book Islander: an enticing exploration of the smallest islands of Britain.

In this evocative book, Patrick Barkham travels from larger small islands to ever-smaller islands in search of their special magic. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from dropouts to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is to be an islander, and uncovers bizarre and touching stories about island life, whilst exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain.

Patrick Barkham is a features writer for the Guardian, where he has reported on everything from the Iraq War to climate change. He is the bestselling author of The Butterfly Isles: A Summer in Search of Our Emperors and Admirals, Badgerlands: The Twilight World of Britain's Most Enigmatic Animal and Coastlines: The Story of Our Shore. He lives in Norfolk.
