The Secret World of Weather, Isle of Wight Festival

Tristan Gooley talks about his latest book, The Secret World of Weather.

6th October 2022

Booking details to follow at the IOW Literary Festival website.

Each day we pass dozens of small weather signs that reveal what the weather is doing all around us – and what is about to happen. The clues are easy to spot when you know how, but remain invisible to most people. 

Join bestselling author Tristan Gooley, as he explains how to read the signs in every cloud, breeze, hill, street, plant, animal, and dewdrop. Learn rare skills that enhance every minute you spend outdoors, whether you are in a town, on a beach or in a wilder spot. 

‘After 40 years as a professional meteorologist, I’ve looked at the weather through Tristan Gooley’s fresh eyes and seen new things.’ Peter Gibbs, Weatherman and BBC Presenter

As the author of the international bestsellers THE WALKER’S GUIDE and HOW TO READ WATER, Tristan Gooley knows how to de-code the phenomena and signs to look for. As he says, ‘I want you to get to know these signs as I have, as characters. By studying their habits and behaviours, the signs come to life and the meaning reveals itself. From this flows an ability to read what is happening and what is about to happen’.

This is the ultimate guide to exploring an undiscovered world, one that hides in front of our eyes.
