Join Associate Producer Laurie McAndish King for a conversation with longtime New York Times contributor Perry Garfinkel on the Lowell Thomas Award-winning podcast, Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer.
What do travel writing and Buddhism have in common? How can a “travel writer’s mindset” extend your vacation and make it more enjoyable? Why does a professional travel writer recommend modeling after the masters—and stealing freely? (And what did Perry Garfinkel steal from Woody Allen?)
Learn all this and more from Garfinkel, a travel writing teacher and author of Buddha or Bust: In Search of Truth, Meaning, Happiness, and the Man Who Found Them All and Travel Writing for Profit and Pleasure. He will also give us a preview of his upcoming travel writing workshop (August 30 – September 5, 2015) on Martha’s Vineyard.
