It’s that time of year again: Get ready for Book Passage’s annual Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, from August 10-13 in Corte Madera, CA.

Legendary travel writer Tim Cahill, acclaimed author Karen Joy Fowler, and guidebook maven Pauline Frommer are just a few of the incredible names Book Passage has assembled for faculty this year. Here’s the full list.

The conference offers an array of workshops, panels, and evening activities and has an extraordinary reputation among publishers, editors, and writers. Alumni have published books, articles, and photos—many as the direct result of lessons learned and contacts made at the conference.

Jeff Greenwald reports that the Ethical Traveler trip to Cuba October 13-23 still has two spaces left. But act fast if you want to go; the trip will be closing on August 15th. Here are more details from Jeff:

As you have no doubt heard, Donald Trump has placed new restrictions on travel to Cuba. He’s very concerned with human rights, as you know (unless the perpetrator is Russia, or Saudi Arabia).

I’m thrilled to announce the impending launch of my new collection of travel stories, Your Crocodile has Arrived.

The party will be on Saturday, August 19th, at Book Passage in Corte Madera, and Travel Writers News subscribers are all invited. More info and a link to the invitation are here. We’ll have lots of chocolate (in honor of the story about my chocolate massage), including enough of the world’s best chocolate cake to serve the first twenty people who request it—so arrive early.
