“A stunning meditation on climate crisis” – The Guardian
Cynan Jones’ sixth book Stillicide is made up of twelve interconnected stories set in a future where life has been transformed by the scarcity of fresh water. Originally commissioned as a series of fifteen-minute readings for BBC Radio 4, this is a moving story of love and loss and the will to survive, and a glimpse of an all too tangible future.
Come join The Dark Philosophers this April to read and discuss this prescient work by one our most talented writers. We recommend that you read the book in advance if you can, although short passages will be read aloud during the session.
We’ll also take some time to explore water imagery more broadly in Welsh writing, and its symbolism in relation to cultural as well as ecological crises.
All welcome, especially those new to writing from Wales. Feel free to contact group convenor Casi Dylan with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
About the Group:
The Dark Philosophers is an open reading group which brings the literature of Wales out of the shadows. Encompassing writing in Welsh and English, contemporary and ancient, rural and urban, we are building a reading list as expansive and complex as this small nation itself.
