October 20, 2021: "Always a Traveler, Never a Tourist" with Judy Bloomberg
Judy Bloomberg has visited 115 countries and all seven continents. Stuck at home during the COVID shutdown, she began curating her collection of thousands of travel photos, selecting the ones she considered most interesting and most depictive of life in the less-traveled corners of the world. After a bit of prodding from friends, she finally agreed that the photos would make a compelling book. "Always a Traveler, Never a Tourist: In Search of People and Places on the Road Less Traveled" , is a collection of 294 of her best photos from those trips, focusing on the most exotic destinations on all seven continents (and the people who inhabit them) along with insights and anecdotes about traveling off the beaten path.
Please join us for this virtual event, on October 20 at 7:30 pm, when Judy will be talking about her travel experiences and sharing some of the fascinating photos from her book. Q&A will follow.
