£8 | Accompanied under 16s free



In Where My Feet Fall, editor and erstwhile radio story specialist, Duncan Minshull has commissioned a series of essays in which writers explore the part walking plays in their working lives and the rhythm of their days, whether in pursuit of health, inspiration or for research.

Recently awarded an MBE for services to literature, Irenosen Okojie is a Nigerian-born short story and novel writer working in London. Her stories incorporate magic realism and also make use of her West African heritage. Her first novel, Butterfly Fish won a Betty Trask Award in 2016, and her story Grace Jones won the 2020 Caine Prize for African Writing. Joanna Kavenna grew up in Britain, of Welsh heritage, and has also lived in the US, France, Germany, China, Sri Lanka, Scandinavia, Italy and the Baltic states. She is the author of several critically acclaimed works of fiction and nonfiction, including The Ice Museum, Inglorious, Come to the Edge, A Field Guide to Reality and – most recently - Zed. Her novel Inglorious won the Orange Award for New Writing, and her novel The Birth of Love was longlisted for the Orange Prize. Irenosen and Joanna will be in conversation with Duncan Minshull quite possibly after taking a walk together.

Beyond the borders of Narnia, an imaginary world for children, Lewis takes his readers on an exploration of three other worlds: Mars, Venus and finally Earth. His traveller of the cosmos, Ransom, learns about the reign of God over the whole universe, and in light of that vision discovers what it means to live a flourishing life and resist hostile powers. Participants in this reflection day will make their own journey through realms that can be called spirituality as much as they are science fiction. Paul Fiddes is a Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Oxford.
