LCW Reads: An Elephant Ate My Arm by Laurie McAndish King
Book Passage, Corte Madera
Saturday, June 12th 2pm
Left Coast Writers At Book Passage
That’s right: at Book Passage in Corte Madera, outside on the patio, for the first on-site event of the year.
Left Coast Writers® at Book Passage is pleased to present the latest book by Laurie McAndish King, An Elephant Ate My Arm: More True Stories from a Curious Traveler.
The third book in a series that includes Lost, Kidnapped and Eaten Alive and Your Crocodile Has Arrived this new collection of travel tales is far ranging, exciting, and often hilarious. Laurie’s reading will be accompanied by wine, snacks and Cuban salsa music (possibly dance lessons, too).
“Halfway through An Elephant Ate My Arm, King describes her own method: ‘I had a nose for weirdness.’ Indeed, King finds weirdness and wonderfulness all over the world, and she describes both with verve and humor. But something else is at play here: a willingness to explore not just the outer world, but the inner one, too. To this personal journey she brings understated grace.”
—Constance Hale, Journalist, travel writer, and author of Sin and Syntax
