Linda Cracknell & Dan Richards

Train and river

Linda Cracknell follows Robert Louis Stevenson to France, and Dan Richards visits Tove Jansson’s Finnish archipelago. Linda Cracknell travels to France in the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson, considering the effects of motion and travel on writing and discovering that sitting beside a river can be as much of a journey as sitting on a long distance train. Dan Richards visits the beautiful archipelago that provided both part-time home and profound inspiration for one of Finland’s best-loved writers.
