Join us for the launch of a travel memoir for our times – ‘Joining Loose Ends: How a long walk revealed a new life’ – by Keith Badger.
It’s the inspiring story of how this former corporate executive and his wife walked 2,801 kilometres end to end across the UK, to find their lives unexpectedly transformed. There could be no going back to the life they had left behind. They had slowed their lives down and discovered a new way of seeing the world and their place in it.
