THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY CLUB, inspired by Richard C. Morais’ international bestselling novel, THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY, (Scribner 2011) has officially launched.
Soon to be a major motion picture (August 2014) starring Helen Mirren, Om Puri, and Manish Dayal, directed by Lasse Hallström, and produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Juliet Blake, DreamWorks Studios, and Participant Media, THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY seeks to inspire in all of us a commitment to live courageously.
A Hundred-Foot Journey begins the moment you bravely drop what is familiar and cross over into a new realm well beyond your comfort zone. It is a profound journey, however small in physical distance, that materially changes the course of your life for the better.
We’ve launched THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY CLUB to collect and share these journeys. Anyone who has made, or dreams of making, a Hundred-Foot Journey can join. Our goal is to build a community of people who embrace the idea that even the smallest events and initiatives can be the most powerful catalysts of personal transformation.
If you have a Hundred-Foot Journey story you’d like to share, please write it (500-700 word limit) or make a short video and send it to Journey@100footjourneyclub.com. Every month we will pick the story we find most moving, and the contributor will receive a signed copy of The Hundred-Foot Journey. Additionally, one story will be selected and awarded a special honor prior to the release of the film.
We look forward to hearing from you and being inspired by your journeys.

“This novel, of mythic proportions yet told with truly heartfelt realism, is a stunning tribute to the devotion of family and food, in that order.”—Booklist (Starred Review)
“The novel’s charm lies in its improbability: it’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ meets ‘Ratatouille.’” —New York Times Book Review
“Serious foodies will swoon. Morais throws himself into the kind of descriptive writing that makes reading a gastronomic event.” —Washington Post Book Review
“Hilarious romp through life, love and the workings of a French kitchen.” —O, Magazine
