Margaret will read from her latest novel ‘The Gathering Night’, which is set among Mesolithic hunter-gatherers living among the islands of the Inner Hebrides 8000 years ago. These people left no records and (unlike our present-day society) made little impact on the environment. Margaret will discuss the challenge of imagining how these people lived in physical and spiritual harmony with their environment.www.margaretelphinstone.co.uk
