One of the highlights of Marlborough LitFest’s tenth anniversary will be the visit of Raynor Winn and her husband, Moth. Her bestselling book The Salt Path is this year’s Big Town Read.
There is much more about Raynor and Moth and her book of their travels, travails and victories in Sue Round’s earlier article on marlborough.news
