Karen Lloyd: The Gathering Tide – A personal journey around the Edgelands of Morecambe Bay

08/10/2016, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

- £4

Part of our Associated Events Programme; with Borderlines Carlisle Book Festival

Karen Lloyd will read from and talk about her bestselling book ‘The Gathering Tide. The author explores many of the bay’s best loved landscapes and digs into its hidden and little-known corners. On the journey she encounters iconic wildlife, discovers islands that may not exist, walks across the sands to Piel Island and explores the bay’s past through 400 year old sea-charts. This is also a very personal journey encountering memories of growing up close to the shifting sands.

Karen Lloyd is a writer of creative non-fiction and poetry based in Kendal. She is a contributor to the Guardian Nature Diary and to the Caught by the River blog and writes for a number of literary publications, including Scottish Island Explorer and Scotland Outdoor. Karen is a member of Kendal’s Brewery Poets and graduated in 2014 from the Creative Writing M.Litt programme at Stirling University where she gained a distinction. The Gathering Tide is her first book, and she is currently working on her second.
