I missed Don George’s book release party tonight at Book Passage! He was reading with Isabel Allende from his latest anthology
A House Somewhere: Tales of Life Abroad. This collection is “filled with stories of folks who committed themselves to a place that wasn’t their own, but that became home.”
If you’re not familiar with Don George, he is Lonely Planet’s Travel Editor-at-Large and his column appears on LP.com every two weeks. This year Don was given a Gold award by the Society of American Travel Writers for best internet travel article. It was from his column and can be ready in their archive: “Impression: Sunrise at Uluru.”
He is the former editor of Salon.com’s Wanderlust and also the editor of Travelers’ Tales Japan.

Don’t miss his other Bay Area events. Don always puts on a great show and his coversational style at events is always warm and inviting. He’ll be reading at Easy Going in Berkeley on Tuesday Nov. 19, and at Get Lost Travel in San Francisco on Thursday Nov. 21. For location details and future events, keep your eye on the Lonely Planet Events page.
