"Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times"

Nov 19, 2020

Our guest is Katherine May, a writer of fiction as well as nonfiction based in the seaside community of Whitstable, England. She joins us to discuss her enjoyable new book, "Wintering," which draws many engaging and far-flung lessons from literature, history, nature, and mythology about the transformative -- and even inspiring -- power of rest, retreat, and recuperation. As was noted of this book by a critic writing for BookPage: "Beautiful.... [May] is a poetic observer of the natural world, and quotable lines abound.... I want to share 'Wintering' with all my friends who experience winter blues, and keep a copy close at hand for the inevitable winterings of my own life."
