Newton’s Own Carol Reichert: Book Reading At Newtonville Books Monday (11/7) at 7pm

Newtonville Books I Love Newton Book ReadingsJoin Best Women’s Travel Writing 2011 editor Lavinia Spalding and contributors Marcia DeSanctis, Abbie Kozolchyk and Newton’s own Carol Reichert for an evening of sharing true travel stories from around the world at Newtonville Books this Monday, November 11th, at 7 pm.

Any woman whose passport has been stamped a few times knows the surest method of keeping her travel fire alive: by reading and telling tales from the road, passing them along like a torch in a relay race.

From Travelers’ Tales comes The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2011: True Stories from Around the World –the seventh collection in the annual best-selling, award-winning series that invites readers to ride shotgun alongside intrepid female nomads as they travel the world to discover new places, people, and facets of themselves. The stories in this year’s edition are as diverse as the geographic locations, the common thread being fresh, compelling storytelling from a woman’s perspective aimed at making readers laugh, weep, wish they were there, or be glad they weren’t.

In The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2011, readers will:
* Have lunch with a mobster in Japan and drinks with an IRA member in Ireland
* Learn the secrets of flamenco in Spain and the magic of samba in Brazil
* Deliver a trophy for best testicles in a small town in rural Serbia
* Fall in love while riding a camel through the Syrian Desert
* Ski a first descent of over 5,000 feet in Northern India
* Discover the joy of getting naked in South Korea
* Leave it all behind to slop pigs on a farm in Ecuador…and more.

Editor Lavinia Spalding, author of Writing Away: A Creative Guide to Awakening the Journal-Writing Traveler (named one of the best travel books of 2009 by the L.A. Times) and With a Measure of Grace: The Story and Recipes of a Small Town Restaurant, has put together a collection of tales in The Best Women’s Travel Writing that speaks to the reasons why we embark on a journey, and the many reasons why we keep doing it.
