The theme 'Reading the Land' is an invitation to share in the passion, experience and insight of our authors as we explore the best of nature writing. We bring togethers authors for whom our natural world has significance, whether through observation, participation or experience. 

The sold out event offered an amazing lineup,​ including winners of the prestigious 2023 James Cropper Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing and Conservation Writing, plus authors who made the long- and shortlists for the events in each category. Author talks took place at the Grosvenor Arms, while children's events were at Shaftesbury Library and Shaftesbury Arts Centre.

"We hope to stimulate positive ways of living with nature, and encourage the audience to share our passion for the landscapes, coasts, and flora and fauna”
