A Place at the Table

We are eager to share with you a good read, an invitation to encounter and consider hospitality, through the story of A Rocha and the life of the late co-founder Miranda Harris.
This book was jointly written by Miranda Harris and her daughter, Jo Swinney, now ARI’s Director of Communications.

The book was published posthumously last year.

This moving and inspiring book is jointly written by Miranda Harris, co-founder of A Rocha who died in a car accident in 2019, and her daughter, Jo Swinney, who is now A Rocha International’s Director of Communications and a well-known author.The subtitle ‘Faith, Hope and Hospitality’ summarises the main themes, all set within the context of creation care at A Rocha’s first centre in Portugal. ‘A Place at the Table’ recently won a Gold Medal at the 2023 Nautilus Book Awards and has been reviewed as ‘a profound book, lyrically written, and subversively humorous in its observation of daily life lived in community’.
