Move Like Water with Hannah Stowe

8 June, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST

Join Hannah Stowe and Seven Fables on World Oceans Day at East Quay to celebrate her debut, Move Like Water, a heartfelt hymn to the sea and an unforgettable introduction to one of the most gifted nature writers of the new generation.

The seas cover over two thirds of our planet and yet most of us live our lives on land, creatures of a different element, at once fascinated and terrified by the beauty and power of these great bodies of water. There are some, though, who go to sea, who get to know its many moods – the tranquil and mirror-like, the raging and ripple-swept, and who bring back with them their stories of wonder and warning. Hannah Stowe is one such sea-goer and one such storyteller.

Drawing on her expertise as a marine biologist and sailor, and her experiences in the North Sea, the North Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the North Sea, the Celtic Sea, and the Caribbean, Move Like Water is an exploration of the human relationship with the sea, the powerful impression it has made on our culture, and the terrible damage we have inflicted upon its ecosystems.

In shimmering, fluid prose, Stowe introduces us to five keystone marine creatures – the sperm whale, the humpback whale, the orca, the albatross and the firecrow – encouraging us to fall in love with the seas as she has, to appreciate their majesty and their vulnerability.

‘The shelves are awash with sea books. But Stowe is different. She doesn’t just watch and describe the sea; she’s part of it. It surges inside her and crashes out onto the page. The book’s drenched with salt water. It fizzes, clicks, booms and screams. Tremendous.’ Charles Foster

‘Exquisite in its intelligence and boundless in the fetch of its wave.’ Jay Griffiths
