Rewilding the Urban Soul

We’re a famously nature-loving nation, yet 86 per cent of Australians call the city home. Amid the concrete and the busyness, how can we also answer the call of the wild?


Once upon a time, a burnt-out Claire Dunn spent a year living off the grid in a wilderness survival program. Yet love, and the possibilities of human connection drew her back to the city, where she soon found herself as overscheduled, addicted to her phone, and lost in IKEA as the rest of us. Given all the city offers – comfort, convenience, community, and opportunity – she wants to stay. But to do so, she’ll have to learn how to rewild her urban soul.

With Rewilding the Urban Soul: searching for wild in the city, Maitland born and bred author Claire inspires the possibility of wildness, both inner and outer, for all those living within city limits and beyond.

Join us for the Newcastle celebration and launch, meet the author, listen to her talk about the book, buy a book and have it signed at Suspension Espresso (Islington) on Thursday, 12 August, 6–8pm. Tickets are $20 pp and include a buffet dinner.
