DON GEORGE

 

Travel writer Don George, author of The Lonely Planet Guide to Travel Writing and for over forty years one of the most acclaimed writers in his field, reflects on some of his many adventures tonight and tells some stories collected in his book, The Way of Wanderlust: The Best Travel Writing of Don George (Travelers Tales).  “What shines with crystal clarity through all of these wise and wonderful essays is Don George’s irrepressible generosity of spirit. He loves the world he finds, and the world loves him back in equal measure. Those of us lucky enough to know him have long recognized Don as a seriously life-enhancing kind of fellow: this marvelous collection serves amply to reinforce the notion. And no: no favors were sought or offered for this message. Not a one.” — Simon Winchester.
