Book well received at American Pilgrims on the Camino (APOC) annual gathering

Belleville, Ill — American Pilgrims on the Camino gathering participants had rare opportunities to review and hear excerpts from the Camino’s most recent walking guide last week at The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. Spiritual and Walking Guide: León to Santiago on El Camino, a guidebook that combines Christian daily devotionals with a walking guide for the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in northern Spain, was unveiled at the annual gathering.

“The book was well received,” exclaimed author Stacey Wittig, who was on-site to answer questions about the Camino guide. “I so appreciated American Pilgrims on the Camino organizers, who offered table space to show my new paperback.”

The dimensions of the small book were designed to fit conveniently in an outside pocket of the pilgrim’s backpack; it is, of course, light weight.

The book is also available in Kindle and eBook versions for those who would rather read it from their tablet or smart phone. Gathering attendees at The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows also heard Wittig read one of the daily Camino devotionals at the end of the “Camino Cabaret,” a talent show which has become a tradition at the annual gatherings.

The 2015 Annual Gathering of Pilgrims will be held in Menlo Park, Calif. on March 12-15.
