Author Kurt Koontz to speak at Del Mar Library

Kurt Koontz, author of A Million Steps, will be speaking and signing at the Del Mar and Bonita-Sunnyside branches of San Diego County Library.  The author visits will take place on Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. at the Del Mar Branch (1309 Camino Del Mar; 858-755-1666) and at 2 p.m. at the Bonita-Sunnyside Branch (4375 Bonita Rd.; 619-475-4642).  Books will be available for purchase.

A Million Steps recounts Koontz’s journey across the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, a Spanish pilgrimage route dating to medieval times. Those million steps inspired Koontz to write about his life-changing adventure when he arrived home.  After his remarks, Koontz will answer questions from the audience.

“Throughout my life, I made many attempts to understand the concept of living in the now,” says Koontz. “Walking the Camino de Santiago provided the key to this puzzle in a most innocent manner. Each day on the trail is a mystery loaded with complete uncertainties. Nothing is planned and each corner is filled with intrigue.”

Koontz grew up in Idaho and was a successful sales executive all over the world. After an early retirement, he volunteered in his community and traveled. It was not until El Camino de Santiago that he began to write about his travels, which also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery, and love. Koontz now lives and writes in Boise, Idaho.
