Do join us on Wed 21st Nov for an Autumnal treat – Kate Humble, talking about her new book, Thinking on My Feet.
The book tells the story of Kate’s walking year – shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate’s inspiring narrative not only records her walks throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions – capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows.
As she explores the reasons why we walk – whether for creative energy, challenge and pleasure, or therapeutic benefits, Kate’s reflections and insights will encourage, motivate and spur readers into action. Also included are her walks with others who have discovered the magical, soothing effect of putting one foot in front of the other, including the artist who walks to find inspiration for his next painting and the woman who walked every footpath in Wales (3,700 miles) when she discovered she had cancer.
‘An enticing read that makes every walk Humble describes an adventure’ – RANULPH FIENNES
‘A beautiful and magnificent book. A paean to a simple act. I defy you to read this book and not be inspired to walk, march or hike – and as a result live a better life more connected with nature and the world around you.’ – SIMON REEVE
