Boise Author Kurt Koontz on Aug. 1 DIALOGUE

— Airs Friday, August 1, at 7:30 p.m. MT/PT
— Repeats Sunday, August 3, at 5:00/4:00 p.m. MT/PT

On the August 1 edition of DIALOGUE, host Marcia Franklin talks with Boise author Kurt Koontz about his book, A Million Steps, which chronicles his journey along the Camino de Santiago trail in northern Spain. The program airs at 7:30 p.m. and repeats Sunday, August 3, at 5:00/4:00 p.m. MT/PT.

The 500-mile route, known colloquially as “The Way,” was originally a trek made by Catholic pilgrims to the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, believed to be the burial place of St. James, an apostle of Jesus. Today, 200,000 seekers a year from all backgrounds traverse the path.

Franklin talks with Koontz about why he decided to take the journey, what he learned along the way, and why he wanted to write a book about his experiences. In a Web Extra available online at, Koontz shares tips for walking the Camino, and describes the process of writing and publishing his book.
