Book Club: A Line Above the Sky
This month we are reading A Line Above the Sky by Helen Mort
“Helen Mort has always been drawn to the thrill and risk of climbing: the tension between human and rockface, and the climber’s powerful connection to the elemental world. But when she becomes a mother for the first time, she finds herself re-examining her relationship with both the natural world and herself, as well as the way the world views women who aren’t afraid to take risks.
A Line Above the Sky melds memoir and nature writing to ask why humans are drawn to danger, and how we can find freedom in pushing our limits. It is a visceral love letter to losing oneself in physicality, whether climbing a mountain or bringing a child into the world, and an unforgettable celebration of womanhood in all its forms.”
Join us for an informal discussion about the book. Everyone is welcome to join (even if you haven’t quite finished the book!) We are a very relaxed and informal group so please dont be shy to join!
