Caught by the River

Amy Liptrot at Bush Hall

9th January 2016

Now that Christmas is out of the way, we’d like to remind you that tickets are on sale for our next event: The Caught by the River Social Club, taking place at London’s Bush Hall on Sunday 28 February.

Along with Florence and Virginia Astley, The London Sound Survey and Caught by the River poets-in-residence Will Burns and Martha Sprackland, we’re pleased to have Amy Liptrot back at one of our events.

Amy will be reading from her long-awaited book The Outrun (which started out as Curious Isles – A Life on Orkney, a series of columns published here on Caught by the River). She’ll also be in conversation with Emma Warren, whose review of The Outrun can be found here.

Tickets for the event are available here.


We couldn’t help but notice that Emma isn’t the only person getting excited about Amy’s debut: writing in The Guardian last weekend, Will Self commented: “The Outrun comes as something of a revelation: Liptrot uses technology to enhance her engagement with the natural world – and writes about it superbly.”

Our Book of the Month, The Outrun is published on 14 January. Signed copies are available to pre-order from the Caught by the River shop here for the special price of £12.00.
