THE JAN MORRIS LECTURE: REDISCOVERING MAGIC IN THE LANDSCAPE
Jini Reddy, introduced by Stephanie Merritt
Thursday 27 May 2021, 13:00 – 13:50
The author of Wanderland looks at non-orthodox perspectives on landscape, and considers the richness and wisdom they bring. Born in Britain to Indian parents from South Africa, and raised in Canada, Jini has contributed to anthologies, penned a guidebook, and her texts and poems have been displayed in exhibitions at London’s Southbank Centre and at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. As a travel writer, in 2019 she was named a National Geographic Woman of Impact. Her work explores a cross-cultural, cross-genre space where place, spirituality and culture meet.
