What: “A Year in the World: Journeys of a Passionate Traveler"
Who: Francis Mayes, Author, Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany, and two illustrated books, In Tuscany and Bringing Tuscany Home.
In her first all-new work of literary travel writing since Bella Tuscany, Frances Mayes ventures beyond Tuscany with A Year in the World: Journeys of a Passionate Traveler. Immersing herself in the daily life of twelve different locales, she applies her unerringly perceptive eye and distinctive, lyrical prose style to portraits of countries and regions. With her beloved Tuscany as home base, Mayes travels to Spain and Portugal, France, the British Isles, and the Mediterranean world of Turkey, Greece, the South of Italy, and North Africa. Join us for an evening of travel stories, followed by an hors d'oeuvres reception with Francis Mayes, and a slide show of photos taken by Ms. Mayes’s husband, Edward. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Council’s Education Fund.
