76. Emily’s Walking Book Club

Reading and walking – our great escapes during the Covid Crisis. Which made us think it was the perfect time to revisit our interview with writer and journalist Emily Rhodes. Since 2012, Emily has been running her successful Walking Book Club on Hampstead Heath, a wild park of woodland and meadows, not far from central London. We met up one windy day and Emily told us more about the joys of walking and talking about books.

This also gave us the perfect excuse to come up with some handpicked book club recommendations on the theme, from past podcast favourites such as Peter Matthiessen’s epic Snow Leopard to hot-off-the-press release The Well Gardened Mind by Sue Stuart-Smith. We have books to enrich the mind and restore the soul.
