AQ Book Club: Local by Alastair Humphreys
Join us for our adventure book club on the last Thursday of the month!
How it works:
1) Read the book in advance of the discussion
2) Join the event via zoom
3) The moderator will introduce the event and the format
Optional: feel free to indulge in a glass of wine, cocktail or cup of tea though as this is a virtual event it is definitely BYOB!
About the book: After years of expeditions all over the world, adventurer Alastair Humphreys spends a year exploring the detailed local map around his home.
Can this unassuming landscape, marked by the glow of city lights and the hum of busy roads, hold any surprises for the world traveller or satisfy his wanderlust? Could a single map provide a lifetime of exploration?
Discovering more about the natural world than in all his years in remote environments, he learns the value of truly getting to know his neighbourhood.
An ode to slowing down, Local is a celebration of curiosity and time spent outdoors, as well as a rallying cry to protect the wild places on our doorstep.
