I will be speaking on Connecting the Local to the Global at the Beyond Borders Festival in Scotland on August 17th


Books, Border & Bikes – The 4th Annual Festival of Literature and Thought

17th & 18th August 2013


A unique two-day literary festival that brings together internationally renowned writers, cultural leaders and artists for a relaxing yet stimulating weekend of debate, literary walks, art exhibitions, poetry readings and bike rides, all in the historical surroundings of Traquair House.


Join Tessa Tennant as she talks to Jeremy Purvis of Keep Scotland Beautiful, journalist and self-professed “wannabe woodsman” Rob Penn and Tom Burke, Director of E3G as they tackle a crucial environmental debate and talk about how to protect Scotland’s woodlands, wild sanctuaries and precious borderlands.
