Talk

Merryn Glover discussing Of Stone and Sky with Eastern Regional Libraries of Melbourne

(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)

Set on a farming estate in the upper reaches of the River Spey, Of Stone and Sky follows several generations of a shepherding family in a paean to the bonds between people, their land and way of life. It is a profound mystery, a passionate poem, a political manifesto, shot through with wisdom and humour.

Join Merryn Glover for a digital Meet the Author event for an hour of readings, a Q&A conversation with the wonderful Kristin Pedroja, and stunning video’s of the book’s Cairngorms setting. This event is hosted by Eastern Regional Libraries, Victoria at 10am UK time.
