Pam Mandel with Paulette Perhach
This evening, Seattle travel writer Pam Mandel celebrates the publication of her book, The Same River Twice: A Memoir of Dirtbag Backpackers, Bomb Shelters, and Bad Travel (Skyhorse), her account of a life-defining journey from the California suburbs to Israel to the Himalayan peaks and back. With no guidance and no particular plan, utterly unprepared for what lies ahead, shesays yes to everything and everyone, embarking on an adventure across three continents and thousands of miles, from a cold water London flat to rural Pakistan, from the Nile River Delta to the snowy peaks of Ladakh and finally, back home to California, determined to shape a life that is truly hers. Pam Mandel appears in conversation with Seattle writer Paulette Perhach.
"A vivid, raw, and lyrical book that cuts deep from the very start, and reminds you that there are no shortcuts to healing. If you were skeptical of fairy tales as a kid, the moral of this gritty story will resonate: that sometimes, the only person coming to save you is yourself."--Geraldine DeRuiter, author of All Over the Place.
