Chaired by Jim Crumley. Jim has worked as a journalist for nearly twenty-five years, has written over twenty books and regularly contributes to newspapers, magazines and broadcast programmes on natural history

Following this talk, acclaimed poet & founder of the Scottish Poetry Library Tessa Ransford will read from her work to end the festival.
