Dr. Claire Gilbert — “Miles to Go Before I Sleep: My Journey with Julian of Norwich.”
Fri 30 Sep at 7.00 pm until 9.30 pm - Our Lady St Mary South Creake, South Creake, NR21 9LX
Claire Gilbert has been journeying with Julian of Norwich for many years, both as a writer and in her own life. Claire’s PhD at Kings College London focused on how Julian’s porosity, her openness to connection, is something society today needs to better engage with our ecological emergency. Miles to Go Before I Sleep, now out in paperback, is a deeply spiritual meditation with Julian of Norwich as a guide and companion on life and suffering, and an exploration of how faith is no simple solace but provides a whole new plane of meaning during these liminal moments.
Claire’s new book, an imagined autobiography of Julian’s life, is scheduled to be published by Hodder in the spring.
