Two Lights Walking through Landscapes of Loss and Life – Book Launch

Join us for books and wine as we celebrate the launch of James Roberts’ new book Two Lights – An extraordinary account of searching for the wilderness left in our world, spanning continents and geological eras, skies and oceans, animals and birds and even the planets and stars.

By Walking at dawn and dusk, through the two lights of awakening and regathering, through the stripped windswept hills of Wales, and the jungles and savannahs of Africa, he tries to find a way from a soul-stripping sense of loss towards hope in the future.

In the resilience of wild creatures he finds a way back to life.

“Deeply personal yet always outward looking, James Roberts delights in the world he discovers about him. Yet he also trembles, because he understands like winter light, that world is diminished … and diminishing … Two Lights reveals why all of us should be writers.”

Robert Minhinnick, poet and author of Diary of the Last Man

“A moving meditation on loss and fragility, tenderly tracing a love of wild creatures across landscapes of damaged yet deeply felt meaning. Startling and generous beauty, Two Lights finds light in the wondrous presence of others and the interconnectedness of all living things.”

Julian Hoffman, author of Irreplaceable: The Fight to Save Our Wild Places
