Brigit Strawbridge’s Book Praised By Wainwright Prize Judge

There has been high praise for Shaftesbury nature writer Brigit Strawbridge-Howard’s first book ‘Dancing with Bees’.

Brigit was shortlisted for the 2020 Wainwright Prize for UK nature writing. Unfortunately, she was pipped to the prize last night, when 16-year-old Dara McAnulty was announced the winner. He’s published by Dorset’s Little Toller Books.
