Author to discuss new book in online event

THE RETURN of Wigtown Wednesdays next week will see author Katherine May discussing her new book, Wintering, which explores the power of rest and retreat.

The free online events put together by the team behind Wigtown Book Festival allows readers to discuss literature, life and a multitude of subjects with a range of different authors.

In Wintering, Katherine shares her own personal experiences from the past year, looking at the themes of illness, loss, grief, shame, career changes and parenting guilt.

She also discusses her travels to Norway and Iceland in pursuit of winter and to interview locals who have themselves wintered in extreme ways.

Adrian Turpin, Wigtown director, said: “We created Wigtown Wednesdays in response to the first Covid lockdown – but they have really developed an identity of their own as a chance to hear some of today’s most interesting writers talk about their work, their ideas and their worlds. The line-up over the next few weeks will take us on everything from personal journeys of health and healing to the possible break up of Britain.”

Join Katherine next Wednesday, February 24 for the event. Find more information at
