Coming to Talk Story Bookstore on Kauai for a book reading and signing on Friday, November 9th.
Craigside Press is pleased to announce the release of Boarding Passes to Faraway Places in August 2018. Boarding Passes to Faraway Places takes readers on journeys to unusual destinations that few have traveled to – the Karakoram Mountains, Pakistan, a voodoo Marché aux fétiches in Togo, Africa, a lost Maya world in Central America, and many others as well as some exotic places that no longer can be visited – Damascus, Aleppo and Palmyra, Syria.
This engaging collection of travelogues offers road warriors and arm chair travelers alike stories from distant, sometimes isolated, locales. For instance, Sibilla describes his chance meeting with the President of Guatemala who choppered into a jungle LZ next to his mules, the surreal morning he awoke in Rangoon on his birthday, living in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Uttar Pradesh, India, sleeping among the moai of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), and finding hope in East Timor at the close of their brutal civil war. Relentlessly wandering, Sibilla tells these and other stories of discovery when, as Sibilla observes, “you let go and allow the path to choose you.”
Boarding Passes to Faraway Places is published by Archway Publishing (a Division of Simon and Schuster) and will be available wherever books are sold. The book has 208 pages. The hardcover price is $24.95. The ISBN is 978-1-4808-4691-3.
