Kelly’s next book:
Kelly’s next project is to write a book about Durham Cathedral. For almost a millennium, Durham Cathedral has stood overlooking the River Wear in the Northeast of England, standing witness to the Christian faith and a thousand years of history. On one end rests the Venerable Bede, England’s first historian, and on the other lies St. Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne. In between is a holy place built by hand and consecrated by the prayers of generations. Today the cathedral community includes hundreds of volunteers, clergy, choristers, musicians, artisans, parishioners, and staff, as well as the approximately 700,000 people who visit from around the world every year. For a year, she lived in Durham with her family in order to immerse herself in this magical place and to document a year in its life. She’s now back in the US and working on completing the first draft. Wish her luck, or, if you’re so inclined, pray for her.
