The Best Women's Travel Writing 2009

I hope you’ll join the fun as authors (including myself, Laurie McAndish King) read from the Travelers’ Tales anthology, The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2009.

Thursday, June 11: We’ll be reading at Get Lost Books in San Francisco (1825 Market Street) at 7 p.m.

• Bonnie Bruinsslot is comforted — and then some — by a handsome young Italian man.
• Pamela Alma Bass considers love and loss in San Miguel de Allende.
• Francesca de Stephano discovers pain, pleasure, and porcini mushrooms in Liguria.
• Kathryn Kefauver loses her privacy in Laos — but gains something equally valuable.
• Laurie McAndish King hunts lions on foot, and without a gun, in Botswana.
• Stacey Tuel inspires a Mexican housewife to rediscover her youthful exuberance.

Thursday, June 18: We’ll be at Books, Inc. in Laurel Village (SF) at 7 p.m.. Join us for a glass of wine and to hear Pamela Alma Bass, Francesca de Stephano, and Laurie McAndish King read.

Sunday, June 28: You can hear us at Diesel Books in Oakland at 3 p.m. Publisher Larry Habegger and editor Lucy McCauley will join us, as will Ken Matusow and Millicent Susens, with their stories from Travelers’ Tales The Best Travel Writing 2009.

• Pamela Alma Bass considers love and loss in San Miguel de Allende.
• Carol Beddo remembers her love affair with an Ethiopian in Addis Ababa.
• Diana Cohen learns about pottery — and secrets from Spain’s dark history — in an Andalucian village.
• Laurie McAndish King hunts lions on foot, and without a gun, in Botswana.
• Ken Matusow discovers the central African playground of the Mbuti pygmies a people who seek a life of harmony with nature.
• Millicent Susens finds affirmation in rural Colorado that the unexpected event is often the most meaningful.
• Yvette Zhu braves a 1,550-mile motorbike course through China.

The stories are funny, inspiring, exciting … and true. And in these days of “staycations,” they may be just the thing to sooth your travel bug.

    Maybe Stephanie Elizondo Griest can make a special appearance. Her non-fiction traveler’s tale, “Around the Bloc,” talks about her time traveling communist countries Russia, China and Cuba. Read about her at cafemagazine.com.
