Tanya Shadrick & Lulah Ellender in conversation

The Cure for Sleep / Grounding

Sunday 26 Jun
12:30-13:30
Wealden Tent

We are delighted to welcome two former Wealden writers-in-residence to discuss their inspiring books both of which, in their very different ways, teach us to pay heed to the world around us and make the most of what we have.

In Tanya Shadrick’s first book, The Cure for Sleep, the author vows to stop sleepwalking through life. To take more risks, like the characters in the fairy tales she loved as a small girl, before loss and fear had her retreat into routine and daydreams.

Lulah Ellender’s Grounding shows how the author found solace in her own small plot of land in Sussex and visits to the celebrated gardens close by such as Charleston and Sissinghurst. The author reflects on the ways in which tending the soil, growing plants, and tuning into the unceasing rhythms of nature can help us live with uncertainty and bring a sense of coming home, of feeling grounded, and ultimately of finding one’s time-bound place here on Earth.
