Martin Shaw brings myths and stories to rouse beauty in troubled times, and introduces his new book, The Night WagesIn troubled times it can be easy to fall into either despair or numbness. Traditionally it was the role of the storyteller to rouse awareness of beauty and vocation in such moments, and attend to the grace. Martin brings myths that remind us of love, grief and the mysteries—provoking our humanity. He will also talk about his new book, The Night Wages, a rumination on the vitality of ancient stories in modern times.
