My new collection, The Best Women’s Travel Writing Volume 8, is finally out! Tuesday night we had our first reading, hosted by the San Francisco Travel Lit and Lectures Series at Books, Inc. on Chestnut Street in San Francisco. It was a fantastic event, with about eighty travel fans in attendance. Standing room only! Contributors Laura Fraser, Carrie Visintainer, and Martha Ezell joined me and read excerpts from their fabulous pieces. Stay tuned for more readings and news!
