Explorer, travel writer and BBC presenter, Leon McCarron, has walked the world in search of the stories of humanity. Beginning his journey in Jerusalem, he travelled 1000 miles on foot through the heart of the Middle East in 2015. This five-month journey took him through the rolling green hills and terraced olive groves of the West Bank; the deep, chasm-like wadis and ancient kingdoms of Jordan; and the vast, rugged deserts of the Sinai Peninsula. Along the way, McCarron collected the thoughts and stories of the people he met. In this special evening, combining a film screening and talk, McCarron will explore the various layers of culture, history, faith and politics at work in one of the most complex places on Earth.

Books for sale. Includes a book signing.
