Sara Maitland is an Award-winning novelist and non-fiction writer, perhaps best known for her A Book of Silence: a meditation on the history of silence in Western and Eastern religious traditions, and a personal exploration of her own encounters with solitude.  Sara will be talking to fellow writer Dr James Canton about her recent travels in The Sinai, the basis of her next book.
