Connections With Nature – Kate Stephenson

November 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Not Just Books are delighted to host this free event with the editor of Connections with Nature: 50 moments of meeting the wild.

Kate’s roots are firmly here in Thetford and we’re thrilled to bring her home for this exciting opportunity to have a conversation with one of the country’s most passionate wildlife journalist, blogger and campaigner.

In this brand new anthology; Connections With Nature: 50 moments of meeting the wild, join the collective of nature-loving storytellers, known as ‘The Wildlife Blogger Crowd’, on a journey to meet the wild. 

 Through 50 tales of memorable moments with nature, this anthology serves to remind us of the wonders of the natural world, the benefits of making connections with wildlife and wild spaces, and highlights how our lives are often a lot more entwined with ‘the wild’ than we might immediately realise.  The book’s foreword is written by presenter, photographer and filmmaker Jonathan Scott ‘The Big Cat Man’, and the epilogue contributed by Virginia McKenna OBE, Founder of the Born Free Foundation. Other notable contributors to Connections With Nature: 50 Moments of Meeting the Wild include: Kate Stephenson (book creator and editor), Will Travers OBE, Bella Lack, Tiffany Francis-Baker, Hannah Rudd, Joe Harkness (Bird Therapy), and many more.  

 Barry Madden reminds us how we can all enhance our lives with minimal cost and effort, once we step away from the screen; Tiffany Francis-Baker marvels at the Moon; seven-year-old Benjamin studies the details of a Barn Owl feather; and Alicia Hayden evokes the spectacle of the ‘moorland fairground’ at dusk, with cover illustrations by artist Chloé Valerie Harmsworth.
