Winter Book Discussion: The Thin Places
January 18, 2020 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Join us for a discussion of The Thin Places: A Celtic Landscape from Ireland to the Driftless. Kevin Koch’s book connects places in Ireland with places in the American Midwest’s Driftless Area along themes of Celtic spirituality. It is a work of creative nonfiction, offering narratives of solo and guided hikes through the mountains and bogs of Ireland and among the river bluffs and steep hills of the Driftless Area alongside conversations with spiritual leaders, conservationists, and geologists. The work explores a spirituality of nature that draws from the Catholic Christian tradition, from pre-Christian and Christian Celtic culture, from Native American traditions, and from contemporary post-Christian thought.
Free will offering. No registration required. Copies of the book are available at the Sinsinawa Book and Gift Gallery.
Discussion will be facilitated by Eric Anglada, Ecological Programming Coordinator at Sinsinawa Mound.
