Due to unforeseen circumstances, Katherine May has had to cancel her book tour. All ticket holders have been contacted, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Join us for an evening with Katherine May, the international bestselling author of Wintering, as she talks about her new book Enchantment.

Our sense of enchantment is not only sparked by grand things. The awe-inspiring, the numinous, is all around us, all the time. It is transformed by our deliberate attention. The magic is of our own conjuring.

Feeling bone-tired, anxious and overwhelmed by the rolling news cycle and the pandemic age, Katherine May seeks to unravel the threads of a life wound too tightly. Could there be another way to live – one that feels more meaningful, more grounded in the places beneath our feet? One that would allow us to feel more connected, more rested and at ease, even as seismic changes unfold on the planet?

Craving a different path, May explores the restorative properties of the natural world and begins to rekindle her sense of wonder. It is a journey that takes her from sacred wells to wild moors, from cradling seas to starfalls. Through deliberate attention and ritual, she finds nourishment and a more hopeful relationship to the world around her. Enchantment is an invitation to each of us to experience life in all its sensual complexity and to find the beauty waiting for us there.

‘Enchantment’ is a balm for the times we live in and a call to revel in the small wonders of the natural world. We look forward to welcoming Katherine to Booka to celebrate its.
