EIBF – Merryn Glover & Rachel Hewitt: Women in the Wild


  • Baillie Gifford West Court
  •  Sat 12 Aug 10:45 – 11:45

Recent years have seen a seismic shift in nature writing. Join two authors who entwine historical narratives of courageous women with their own experiences of the great outdoors. Merryn Glover’s The Hidden Fires presents new understandings of the Cairngorms, while Rachel Hewitt’s In Her Nature explores how running through landscape recovered a sense of belonging after grief. In this innovative event, hear them in conversation with endurance cyclist Emily Chappell, then join them for a special hike the following day. For place limits and more details see
