Huddersfield Literature Festival presents an unmissable talk by a powerful and refreshing new voice in nature writing.

 

After a race-hate crime, which left her with panic attacks and anxiety, Anita Sethi longed for wide-open spaces. In an act of resistance and to reclaim her right to belong, she embarked on a journey across the Pennines.

 

I Belong Here: A Journey Along the Backbone of Britain is a beautifully written and truly inspiring account of her journey of reclamation through the natural landscapes of the north, exploring identity, nature, place and belonging.

 

I Belong Here was shortlisted for the 2021 Wainwright Prize and won the 2021 Books Are My Bag Readers Award for Non-fiction.

 

“A memoir of rare power.” The Guardian

 

“For anyone who has ever felt out of place, I Belong Here is a moving and comforting read. For everyone else, it is an education. And while punchier and more political than most nature writing, this book is a thing of beauty.” Sunday Times
