Moments of illumination along El Camino de Santiago

Maggio_estrellasIn a new memoir, Boston College alumna Suzanne Maggio shares the story of her 500-mile trek along the Camino, Spain’s ancient pilgrimage. Although she wasn’t sure exactly what drove her to walk the Camino, Maggio felt the need for a reset as she contemplated the beginning of her 60th year. Estrellas: Moments of Illumination Along El Camino de Santiago (Adelaide Books, 2021) relates a journey that extends beyond the month of walking to one that brought Maggio inward to see the vital values of her heart. By writing about a handful of sparkling moments with the people she met along the way, Maggio challenges the reader to appreciate their own constellations of human connection. A licensed clinical social worker, Maggio is also a lecturer at Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College. She is the author of The Cardinal Club, a finalist in both the 2021 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the 2020 IAN Book of the Year.
