About Off the Page: Jim Crumley

Jim Crumley is a Stirling-based nature writer, journalist and poet, and a passionate advocate for Scotland’s wildlife and wild places. He is the author of more than thirty books, and a widely-read columnist in both the Scots Magazine and the Courier. His current projects include two series of books. He is writing the The Nature of Spring, the third volume in a quartet on the seasons, following The Nature of Autumn (2016) and The Nature of Winter (2017). The other series is entitled Encounters in the Wild and features short monograms on individual wildlife species. Titles already in print are Barn Owl, Fox, Swan, Hare, Badger, Skylark, and hot-off the- press are Kingfisher and Otter. Much of Jim Crumley’s work centres around an area he describes as his nature writer’s territory, from Flanders Moss,
Ben Ledi and Glen Finglas in the south to Balquhidder and Glen Dochart in the north.

Venue: Callander Library, South Church Street, Callander FK17 8BN 01877 331544
