A Q&A event with 16-year-old Dara McAnulty author of Diary of a Young Naturalist. His diary entries beautifully detail Dara's connection to nature and the way he sees the world.
'I was diagnosed with Aspergers/autism aged five. By age seven I knew I was very different, I had got used to the isolation, my inability to break through into the world of talking about football or Minecraft was not tolerated. Then came the bullying. Nature became so much more than an escape; it became a life-support system.’
Hosted by author Shirley-Anne McMillan.
This event is presented in partnership with Libraries NI.
