LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK PARTY: Joanna Biggar and Wanderland Writers Monday, April 11, 6pm Book Passage || Ferry Plaza San Francisco || www.bookpassage.com Readers, writers, travelers—adventuresome to armchair—and lovers of Costa Rica, you won’t want to miss an evening of exciting travel tales from this delightful group of travelers. Colette Obrien fills in as host for Linda Watanabe McFerrin at Book Passage in the Ferry Plaza. When workshop leaders Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Joanna Biggar gathered a baker’s dozen of their favorite travelers and writers, they had no idea how transformative the journey would be. Nurtured and inspired in an environment beyond compare, the assembled explored Costa Rica, gathering tales from across the country. From rainforests, volcanoes, tropical beaches, butterfly gardens, colorful towns and villages, the writers wandered the country and brought back a fine collection of poetry and stories that present Costa Rica in richly personal style. On this night, members of the merry band will share some of these travel stories and more as they prepare in spirit for yet another adventure: This year they head for Bali in search of more marvelous tales from the road.
