Indagare Book Club:
The Writer and The Wanderer
with Author Mary Morris

The late John Gardner once said that there are only two plots in all of literature: You go on a journey, or a stranger comes to town. Long ago, Mary Morris—not wanting to wait for the stranger—embraced the journey. Morris has been a wanderer and writer for decades, writing extensively in her journals, her travel memoirs and her blog about what it means to travel and write. And, for Morris, the inner journey can be as powerful as the outer journey. In club, we will discuss what makes travel such a great vehicle for stories, and we will read memoirs and stories that happen on the road.   

In Wild, we will read how Cheryl Strayed, after the loss of her mother, descended into depression and drug addiction before deciding to set out on her hike on the Pacific Coast Trail. We will read Michael Ondaatje’s Running in the Family, as he returns to his beloved Sri Lanka in search of family, and Mary Morris’s All the Way to the Tigers as Morris returns to the road after a devastating accident. We will also devote a class to A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson.

We will be hosting an Insider Journey with Mary Morris February 11 - 15, 2023. This retreat will be three transformational days in the exquisite setting of Chablé Yucatán, a unique paradise hidden within the jungles of the Yucatán Peninsula, where you will experience hands-on workshops, spa treatments, meditation, and true relaxation as well as Chablé Yucatán's curated culinary program and farm-to-table cuisine. You will have the opportunity to observe, reflect, and record you personal journey during work sessions with Mary Morris.
Those signing up for the trip will also receive complimentary access to the Book Club.
