What do you think of when you think of fish? Cold, dead-eyed creatures from the alien deep, simple beasts whose lives to us are at once numbingly banal and mysteriously unfathomable?
Helen Scales will be at Lighthouse Bookshop to disabuse us of these notions, and to offer an alternative insight into this fascinating area of wildlife. Her new book Eye of the Shoal is a follow-up to 2015’s critically-acclaimed Spirals in Time, and recasts humanity’s relationship with fish as far more complex than simply that of predator and prey. Helen’s wide-ranging research into the intelligent and emotional lives of these aquatic animals is sure to provoke an enthralling discussion.
“With the soul of a poet and a talent for finding the most intriguing trivia about familiar seaside sights, marine biologist Scales turns the mundane into the magical.” – Discover Magazine
Join us for a fascinating evening which will showcase fresh insights into the world of marine wildlife, and celebrate nature writing at its finest.
