Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent event!

Roll-up, roll-up for the local girl!! Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent, born and raised in Norfolk, is now rarely found anywhere which doesn't challenge and excite her sense of world adventure. She is an explorer, a travel writer, and a TV film maker, and we are thrilled to be welcoming her back to the shop for an event to mark the launch of her new book on home turf...

A thrilling and dangerous adventure through Arunachal Pradesh, one of the world's least explored places. A mountainous state clinging to the far north-eastern corner of India, Arunachal Pradesh - meaning 'land of the dawn-lit mountains' - has remained uniquely isolated. Steeped in myth and mystery, not since pith-helmeted explorers went in search of the fabled 'Falls of the Brahmaputra' has an outsider dared to traverse it. Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent sets out to chronicle this forgotten corner of Asia. Travelling some 2,000 miles she encounters shamans, lamas, hunters, opium farmers, fantastic tribal festivals and little-known stories from the Second World War. In the process, she discovers a world and a way of living that are on the cusp of changing forever.
