One of our favorite pastimes is inviting our best-loved storytellers to share their adventures with us. Whether they are icons of the literary world or experts in their own field, we relish hearing their experiences and appreciate the way they propel us towards our own travel imaginings.
Isabel Allende in Conversation with Don George
We are thrilled to have acclaimed novelist Isabel Allende joining us in conversation with our own Wanderlust editor-in-chief and award-winning author, Don George. If you'll be in Northern California this September, mark your calendar and check back soon for more event information.
Isabel Allende is an internationally celebrated author and the founder of The Isabel Allende Foundation. Allende won worldwide acclaim with her 1982 novel, The House of Spirits, and has received dozens of international tributes and awards, including Chile's 2010 National Prize for Literature. She describes her fiction as "realistic literature," rooted in her remarkable upbringing, her feminist convictions, and the harsh political realities that shaped her destiny. Her books, all written in Spanish, have been translated into more than 35 languages and have sold more than 60 million copies globally.
Guests are warmly invited to attend a reception before the event; appetizers and drinks will be served.
