The Camino de Santiago & Modern Pilgrimage @Central Library

For Russ Eanes, trekking 500 miles on the ancient Camino de Santiago was not just an item to check off his bucket list. It was a journey he had dreamed of taking for two decades. At age 61, he was too young to retire but wise enough to know that he needed to reorient the hurried pace of his life. He left his work and took a sabbatical to “reset” himself and prepare for this next phase of life. With everything he needed in a 16-pound pack and, equipped with a set of seven simple principles, he took off from St. Jean Pied de Port, France, to walk, as pilgrims have for twelve centuries, across Spain, to realize his dream.
A prolific photographer and storyteller, Eanes will take you along with him on his journeys so that you feel you are walking with him, learning about the history of pilgrimage, about the modern revival of the Camino de Santiago, and about new routes, such as the Way of St. Francis in Italy.
