Tom Keneally Centre Reading
Join travel writer and raconteur Walter Mason as he takes us on an illustrated journey through Cambodia, one of the most fascinating countries in Asia.
From the grounds of crowded Buddhist monasteries, through the mountains of Battambang and into the parlours of shamanesses channelling 900 year old princesses, Walter’s special fascination with the mystical traditions of the Khmer people have given him a unique insight into a coutry more commonly identified with suffering, genocide and the horrors of war.
The tantalising ruins of Angkor Wat are inhabited, not just by poorly-dressed ourists, but also by a spiritual memory and prophetic tradition that dates back centuries.
Cambodia has mystified and enthralled travellers for hundreds of years, but only now are people beginning to discover a country and a people looking forward, and not just backward to its tragic past. Walter will tell some of the stories and show some of the images behind his latest book, Destination Cambodia.
