Join writer, academic and environmentalist Elizabeth-Jane Burnett for the launch of her new book, The Grassling – a lyrical ode to landscape, memory and writerly form.

In keeping with her much lauded poetry collection, Swims, The Grassling follows with evocative writing on immersive experiences in the natural world, from the taste of soil, sound of grass and language of worms, to a poem that lists 80 yellow things seen on a journey from Birmingham to Devon.

The author will discuss her work in relation to the subject of environment and the creative process, with readings from the book.
