From KtB to Lolita

Mark your calendars. If you’ll be in New York City on June 16, come out to Lolita Bar for the Restless Legs reading series. I’ll be joining a handful of other fine women as we read from the Best of Women’s Travel Writing anthology, just out from Travelers’ Tales. My contribution is a KtB original. How can you pass up a reading series that caters to the “wanderlust stricken”? The Restless Legs gatherings bring travelers, travel writers, and the people who love them together for an evening of sharing tales from the road, gossiping, and general debauchery. Join us at 7 pm.
