**A fresh new critique of the English countryside, beginning and ending at a crossroads in north west Hampshire**
## About this event
A searing work of narrative non-fiction, Return of A Native is a fresh new critique of the English countryside beyond our society’s mythologies about it. Beginning and ending at a crossroads in north west Hampshire, with feet planted firmly on the soil, Vron Ware brings her experience of writing about racism, colonial history, war and feminism to show us how to look at the land in a new light. With one eye on the parish and another on the distant horizon, she leaves no stone unturned in this quest to understand how we humans arrived at this place. From Bronze Age ruins to the fall-out from Brexit, Return of a Native is an ecological reckoning with England’s future as well as its deep history.
Vron Ware has been writing about racism, gender, history and national identity since the 1980’s. She has worked as a journalist, photographer, environmental designer and academic. She’ll be in converation with nature writer Nicola Chester about her new book Return of a Native.
