Warm your mind.

Join us for cosy chats with our favourite non-fiction authors, hosted by Rebel Book Club Co-Founder Ben Keene & friends.

Our next campfire  is on Tuesday 20th April at 7pm (BST) featuring Robert Martineau entrepreneur (co-founder of Tribe Snacks) and debut author of Waypoints: A journey on foot.

A spellbinding travel book, exploring the psychology of walking, pilgrimage, solitude and escape.

At the age of twenty-seven, and afraid of falling into a life he doesn’t want, Robert Martineau quits his office job, buys a flight to Accra and begins to walk. He walks 1,000 miles through Ghana, Togo and Benin, to Ouidah, an ancient spiritual centre on the West African coast.

Martineau walks alone across desert, through rainforests, over mountains, carrying everything he needs on his back, sleeping in villages or on the side of paths. Along the way he meets shamans, priests, historians, archaeologists and kings. He begins to confront the lines of slavery and exploitation that binds his home to theirs. Through the process of walking each day, and the lessons of those he walks among, Martineau starts to find the freedom he craves, and to build connections with the natural world and the past.

In an extraordinary account of an adventure, and the inner journey that accompanies it, Martineau discovers how a walking pilgrimage can change a person.


Campfire Conversations is new series showcasing inspiring nonfiction authors, whilst giving you a taste of the Rebel Book Club experience. Format of event is 45 minute chat with Rob and a chance to ask questions.
