Pilgrimage: The Art & the Agony of Ancient Travel

 

Pilgrimage is a subpoena from the heart that defies all common sense, a summons from forces unknown to surrender life as you know it – and walk.

Over the past few years, author and journalist Stephanie Dale has taken two very long walks:

* El Camino, the mystical road across Spain, and
* an unmapped route for a thousand miles across Italy and through the Balkans, and then into the Middle East.

“When you are in a car, beautiful places are a moment;
if you stop the car, they are a cluster of moments.
When you walk, beautiful places are an eternity carved into the soul.”
from My Pilgrim’s Heart

 

Pilgrims walk the Earth, walk the wheel, walk the turning seasons – and pilgrimage is where the romance of the road meets reality, boots to the byways.

Stephanie says there are just three topics of conversation among pilgrims: feet, packs, bed. With more than 1500 dedicated miles beneath her feet, there’s not a lot she doesn’t know about the art and the agony of all three.

Join us for a superb evening of entertainment with Stephanie as she presents to us:
