POSTPONED: It's Your Camino: One Couple's 500-mile Pilgrimage Across Spain
This event has been postponed.
The Camino de Santiago is both quest and pilgrimage, goal and process. It is not a journey for the faint of heart or soft of foot. People embark on the 550-mile, 31-day trek from the Pyrenees Mountains in France to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain for many reasons--religious, spiritual, physical and personal.
For Kenneth R. Strange Jr. and his wife, Aurora, walking the Camino is about adventure and a lifelong love of Spain, both of which shine through in his book It's Your Camino: One Couple's 500-mile Pilgrimage Across Spain.
Strange was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1955. He spent his junior year abroad in Spain studying at the University of Madrid, Facultad de Letras y Filosofia, and later taught high school Spanish and English as a Second Language in New York and the Middle East.
Join the author as he gives overview and summary of the Camino including its historical and spiritual significance, renowned persons who have traveled the Camino, and its evolving attraction for people from all over the world.
