Unconventional Journeys: Leon McCarron & Malachy Tallack
Friday 8 March, 12pm-1pm
Al Baraha 3, InterContinental, DFC
What makes going from A to B an adventure, not a destination? A map can show you the layout of a place, but its emotional geography is something that takes a bit more time and skill to uncover. Leon McCarron is a Northern Irish adventurer, filmmaker, writer and motivational speaker, who believes in the importance of a slower pace to truly understand the world and its people, whether walking 3000 miles across China or trekking 1000 miles across the Empty Quarter. Malachy Tallack is a writer, editor and singer-songwriter from Scotland whose non-fiction books Sixty Degrees North and The Un-Discovered Islands both fuse nature writing, history and memoir. Come and hear what these two writers and adventurers have uncovered on their travels.
