This event will be available from 9am on Thursday 1st July
At just 17 years-old, Northern Irish environmentalist and author Dara McAnulty is the youngest person to win the RSPB Medal and to be shortlisted for the 2020 Wainwright Prize for UK Nature Writing – an accolade he also won.
Throughout his debut book Diary of a Young Naturalist, McAnulty chronicled his deep connection to the natural world through the raw and often lyrical point of view of an autistic teenager juggling mental health issues with life as a modern-day environmental activist. His latest book, Wild Child, takes you a sensory journey through nature, inviting readers to reconnect with the world around them.
We’re delighted to be joined by McAnulty as he takes us inside his unique world to illuminate how his intense connection to nature acts as a soothing balm for severe anxiety and helps him overcome life’s difficulties.
