St Duthac Book Festival talk – “Hutton’s Arse”

25 September @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Peter Harrison took up the challenge of revising and updating an original text produced in 2005 by Dr Malcolm Rider. Just the blink of a geological eye. Peter has lived for 40 years in the northwest Highlands working as a teacher and geoscience educator. He now leads geotours for the North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark. The book introduces the science and people involved in unpicking the immense history involved in shaping this landscape, which still moulds those who live there today.

We are all dependent on our planet and yet do we know how it works and how it should be treated? Some words of Hutton from his texts on geology have become well known ‘no vestige of a beginning, no prospect of an end’. We now know more about the beginning and must learn quickly so as not to hasten the end.

Tickets will go on sale from the 15th August 2022. Tickets £5 – phone 01862857409 or visit www.stduthacbookfest.com
