The Globe Corner Bookstore has announced its latest lecture series lineup. The Adventure Travel Lecture Series includes three events, all beginning at 6 pm at The First Parish Church, at the corner of Church Street and Massachusetts Avenue in Harvard Square. The first one is coming up soon after Thanksgiving, so here’s the scoop on the full set, in case you’ll be in the area at all over the next three months:
On Wednesday, November 28th, Peter Thomson, author of The Sacred Sea: A Journey to Lake Baikal will speak about his and his brother’s extraordinary travels to Siberia. Then, on December 13th, Ferenc Mate will talk about A Vineyard in Tuscany: A Wine Lover’s Dream, his captivating story about pursuing a dream of living in Tuscany. Finally, on January 31, 2008, Helen Thayer will read from Walking the Gobi: A 1600-Mile Trek Across a Desert of Hope and Despair. She’ll talk about her and her husband Bill’s adventures as the first man and woman to walk the entire length of almost 1,500 miles, east to west, of the Mongolian Gobi Desert.
A nice trifecta of engaging journeys have been chosen to be celebrated by the folks at Globe Corner — three very unique and different travel stories. And an interesting collection of books to check out, even if you can’t make any of the Boston-area events.
