Meet the authors who are writing about walking and the landscapes through which we walk, at walk · listen · create’s Walking Writers Salons. We are delighted to have author Torbjorn Ekelund for our May Salon, talking about his approach to writing “In praise of paths”.
‘A deeply fascinating meditation on paths we take through our environment and our lives.‘Erling Kragge, author of Silence: In the age of noise and Walking: One step at a time.
A keen and astute observer, Torbjorn Ekelund invites us to shrug off our shoes, and walk barefoot to get closer to the landscape through which we tread, whether on a well-beaten forest trail, coastal path or beside an urban street. where do we go when we walk a path? Join Torbjorn Ekelund and Andrew Stuck in this month’s Salon, in a contemplative exploration and discussion.
Walking Writers Salons are hour-long events in which you will get to meet a Walking Writer and learn from them how they weave writing and walking, and how they interpret their surroundings. Each Salon will include a discussion with the author, inviting questions from the audience, and will include a multiple choice quiz in which winners will receive prizes including print copies of WALKING (RRP €4.50) and WALKING HOME (RRP €4.99) our own limited edition illustrated chapbook anthologies of poems and prose.
With thanks to Greystone Books, the Vancouver, Canada based publishers of In praise of paths who are offering print and e-book copies as prizes in our quiz.
