“Sun and Winners Star in BATW’s February Meeting”

By Robert W. Bone

In a welcome pause in the recent stormy weather, a warm sun broke through the clouds in Corte Madera on Saturday, February 18, to shine on the BATW February meeting.

About 40 members and guests gathered in a cozy corner of the prestigious Book Passage bookstore on Tamal Vista Boulevard. There they witnessed the culmination of two important annual contests.

These were the highly anticipated presentations of both the BATW Best 2017 Travel Writing and Photography Awards and the traditional Planet Earth Travel Writing Awards.

Karen Misuraca and Jim Gebbie announced the winners and prizes, plus comments by the judges. Several of the prize-winners were in the audience and were able to accept the awards in person.
