Elayne Clift will read from and discuss her 13th book, Around the , a collection of selected stories about her global travels told in prose and poetry, at Rockingham Library on Saturday, November 9.

Clift has visited almost 100 countries on every continent for both work and pleasure. Unlike Fodor’s Guide, this collection shares personal stories, photographs and postscripts that range from poignant to hilarious. There are scenes from Indian railway stations to rural Romanian villages. Along the way readers meet the people who made travel special, ranging from a professor in Jordan to a desert driver in Dubai to an elderly artist in France. One reviewer called the book “a treasure of armchair travel.” Clift will offer a related writing workshop Armchair Journeys on the following Saturday, Nov. 16 from 10:30a.m. – 1 p.m. at Rockingham Library. Please contact the library for more information.

The Library is located at 65 Westminster St., Bellows Falls, VT and is wheelchair accessible.  For more information, call (802) 463-4270, email [email protected] or go to rockinghamlibrary.org
