London Lit Festival 13: Rebecca Solnit

One summer, Rebecca Solnit was bequeathed three boxes of apricots from a neglected tree that her mother, gradually succumbing to memory loss, could no longer tend to.

With this unexpected inheritance came the tales that make up her new book 'The Faraway Nearby'. This inspiring memoir is about family, empathy and the stories that save our lives. Rebecca Solnit is one of America's foremost public intellectuals.

'Truly beautiful, her thoughts are always exploratory and full of curiosity and wonder... [She] will leave you with a strange and joyful sense of rediscovering the adventure of living.' The Observer
