Matt Gaw to talk about hit book The Pull Of The River
PUBLISHED: 05:30 14 April 2019
The breadth and beauty of Britain’s rivers and his hit debut book about them will be the theme of a talk by Suffolk-born writer Matt Gaw in an evening at Sudbury’s Quay Theatre.
Matt, who grew up in the Sudbury area, published The Pull Of The River to wide acclaim last year.
To mark its publication in paperback he will talk about his experiences canoeing on the rivers of the UK, including the Stour, with friend James Treadaway.
The talk forms part of the River Stour festival, which is an on-going celebration of the river, its culture, landscape and people.
Matt and James took their homemade canoe on an exploration of Britain’s rivers and their encounters took them from the Waveney and the Stour to a Scottish loch and wild camping on the Thames.
The Quay Theatre talks takes place on Thursday April 18 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 and are available from the box office website or by ringing 01787 374745.
