Do you grumble about the rain, or do you see it as a life-giving force of nature? Does a beautiful view always look better in sunshine, or are you swept away by a wild and windy day out?
However the weather makes you feel, it is an ever-present part of our lives – and our literature. The rain, the sun, the wind – these uncontrollable elements shape the landscapes that surround us, and deeply affect us both as individuals and as a nation.
On Thursday 28 April, join longstanding Caught by the River contributors Melissa Harrison and Amy Liptrot as they discuss weather as a meteorological, geological and psychological phenomenon.
Both Melissa and Amy will be joining us at festivals throughout the summer, including our very own Caught by the River Thames in August.
