Talk: Walking into Alchemy by Amelia Marriette

with book presentation


Amelia Marriette relocated from the UK to Bad Sankt Leonhard in Carinthia in 2015. So captivated was she by the beauty of the Austrian landscape and needing to recover from redundancy from her post as a Keeper of Art that she started to walk. Amelia walked the same route every week for a year. Walking into Alchemy was published by Mereo Books in Cirencester in the UK in 2020 and is currently being read from Brazil to New Zealand.  The book illustrates a journey, both physical and mental. A book about love and remembering and remarking: a captivating and easy read - poetry and fact lie seamlessly together as the author unravels her newfound love of life and walking.


Do you want a companion and a manual for walking in the beautiful Austrian landscape?

Do you want a book that helps you to find beauty in the world?

Do you want a book to help you find solace and perhaps even help you to find your own path in life?
