Marion Dante: Dropping the Habit

Marion Dante was interviewed on the BBC Radio 4 Saturday Live’s Topical Stories discussing her experiences. Her biography of time as a nun and returning to the world outside the convent, uncovers the personal doubts and questioning of accepted certainties. Marion’s talk is at the Camberley Theatre on Friday 20th May at 2.0pm – 3.0pm

Talk description: Marion Dante always knew she would be a nun. She was born in answer to prayer and she was her mother’s “sin offering”. From the age of 14, enclosed and indoctrinated, she started her training to become a nun. Thirty years later,Marion asks herself the question: if she drops the habit, who then who will she be? Who is Marion Dante without the convent walls?

In her gripping, honest book, Marion bares her soul. She also opens the door to the convent and invites us in. In the stressful hustle and bustle of modern life, have you ever envied the ease, security and peace of a nun’s life?
