We’ll explore and enjoy other places through the works of some of the great travel writers. How is it that they can take us away with words alone? Perhaps we’ll figure that out by looking at short works of some of the greats such as Paul Theroux, Freya Stark, Pico Iyer, and Jan Morris. Each session will include brief discussions about the idea of travel writing, including its development, genres, problems and purposes. We will enjoy closely comparing reactions and savoring the trip.
