Description: Join Georgia Southern University's College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences and the Statesboro Holiday Inn for a lunch-and-learn event! Mary Marwitz, associate professor in the Department of Writing and Linguistics, presents “A Saunter Across Spain: Notes of a Patient Pilgrim.” // In the summer of 2010 Marwitz walked 500 miles across northern Spain, along the pilgrimage route of the Camino de Santiago, carrying everything she needed in a backpack and staying in albergues, or pilgrim shelters along the way. She's in the process of writing a memoir of that walk, a creative nonfiction account of her experiences with the landscape and the people. She will present some of the highlights of the journey and its insights, using an accompanying slideshow of photos. // Participants are welcome to purchase lunch at Emma's restaurant in the Holiday Inn (cost for the lunch buffet is $8). // For more information, email abennett@georgiasouthern.e du.
