5 of Félix 12: Spirit in Spain & the Female Form

Award-winning author, filmmaker, and LitWings founder Erin Byrne will talk about someplace I myself know well: España! From leading fellow writers in search of Lorca’s duende to her own profound spiritual experiences to the film she’s currently producing there, Erin has lots to say about Spain—and writing and travel and so much more. Erin is the author of “Wings: Gifts of Art, Life, and Travel in France,” and the editor of two anthologies: “Vignettes & Postcards from Paris” and “Vignettes & Postcards from Morocco.” Her work has won three Grand Prize Solas Awards for Travel Story of the Year, and she was just named Travel Writing curator for The Creative Process Exhibition, launched at the Sorbonne and traveling to the world’s leading universities.    In my second segment, Lone Mørch will be in the studio all the way from Copenhagen, Denmark. Lone will talk about her new book, “Embody: Intimate Photographic Encounters with Women.” Embody examines the light and the shadows in women's bodies, minds and psyches, revealing how women connect with their own bodies. Lone has lived and worked in Europe, Asia and the United States. She hold a Masters in Politics and Change from Aalborg University, and she’s worked with CARE International in Nepal, been team manager at the Kaospilots in San Francisco, and partner/producer at Ideagarden productions. Her essays have been published in Danish, American and Nepalese magazines, newspapers, and anthologies, and her memoir, “Seeing Red: A Woman's Quest for Truth, Power and the Sacred” is about her soul-baring quest for liberation.
