Peter Finch | 'Edging the City', Penarth Literary Festival

We are delighted to be holding an event with Cardiff legend Peter Finch, author of Walking Cardiff and Real Cardiff among many others, to discuss his latest book Edging the City.  Peter is perhaps the foremost chronicler of Cardiff, past and present. His response to the 2020 lockdown restrictions confining people to their local authority area was to begin walking the boundary of his. This was in a mirror of his long walk along the south Wales coast recorded in Edging the Estuary. Edging the City explores (often literally) why and where borders exist, their purposes, legal and geopolitical reasons for their existence and  when politics crosses boundaries.  Tickets: £5.00.
