Lisa Alpine invites members to “Wander the back ways of worldly wonders and experiences unique to intrepid travelers” on Friday, November 10, at 7 p.m. at Book Passage in Corte Madera. She will be reading her Amazonian adventure published in Travelers’ Tales The Soul of a Great Traveler, along with other literati.

Per Lisa, here is the scoop on this just-released, delicious compilation: “For ten years the editors of Travelers’ Tales have run a writing competition to find the best travel story of the year: The Solas Awards. Over those years, thousands of stories have come across their desks, from writers famous and unknown, covering all corners of the globe with stories of adventure and discovery, love and loss, humor and absurdity, grief and joy. In this collection appear all of the top prize winners of the last ten years, stories that bring readers along for journeys that are inspiring, uplifting, and, very often, transformative. These tales are powerful, moving testaments to the richness of our world, its cultures, people, and places.”

Oh, Lisa says, there will also be complimentary wine….
