When editor of the Radio 4’s Today Programme Sarah suffered from information overload and inability to sleep, she tried to find ways to de-stress. Inspired by the ruins of a nearby Cistercian abbey, she began to research the lives of the monks and monasticism. The Interior Silence is the result of a pilgrimage to 10 monasteries round the world…and, yes, the author and former Evening Standard editor now enjoys elusive, dreamless sleep. She will be interviewed by former Guardian columnist and priest-in- charge at St. Mary’s, Newington Giles Fraser.
