Author Noel Braun will talk about his latest book, ‘I Guess I’ll Just Keep on Walking’ and the former ‘The Day was Made for Walking’ at Yarrawonga Library on July 24.
Noel’s books recall his experiences walking the Camino, the ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in the north-west of Spain.
Noel started his working career as a country school teacher then moved into a corporate career which took him from Melbourne to Perth and Sydney.
He has had a lifelong passion for writing. After a busy career and raising a family, he has found time in retirement to fulfil his long-held ambition to write and to see his work in print. Noel lives in the Snowy Mountains in NSW.
At the age of 77, Noel walked the Camino from France to Spain, a journey described in ‘The Day Was Made for Walking: an Aussie’s Search for Meaning on the Camino de Santiago’.
At the age of 80, Noel returned to France, to walk a less frequented Camino route that took him across France and into Spain.
And two years later, Noel walked through Portugal and into Spain.
‘I Guess I’ll Just Keep on Walking: Continuing the Search for Meaning’ is the story of these two journeys.
Despite his aging body and his many doubts, he has a confidence and faith in himself to face the arduous physical demands and reach Santiago de Compostela.
Woven into his spiritual and emotional journey are fascinating stories of the people he meets. Noel has also written two novels, ‘Friend and Philosopher and Whistler Street’ and a memoir ‘No Way to Behave at a Funeral’.
Bookings are required for Noel’s talk at the Yarrawonga Library on Monday, July 24 at 2pm. Call the library on 1300 374 765 to make a booking by Friday, July 21.
