The Thin Places – Winter Book Discussion – Sinsinawa
SINSINAWA, Wis.—Local author Kevin Koch’s book, “The Thin Places: A Celtic Landscape from Ireland to the Driftless,” will be the topic of discussion at Sinsinawa Mound’s Winter Book Discussion from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18. The book 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 American Midwest’s 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. Copies of the book are available for purchase at Sinsinawa Book & Gift Gallery. For more information, contact Guest Services at 608-748-4411 or visit our website at www.sinsinawa.org/moundcenter. Sinsinawa Mound, the motherhouse for the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, is located in southwest Wisconsin on County Road Z, off Highway 11, about five miles northeast of Dubuque.
