Conroy Center Hosts Conversation with Travel Writers Bill Thompson and Lynn and Cele Seldon

Published

On Tuesday, June 1st, at 6 pm, the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center will host a virtual conversation with Bill Thompson, author of Why Travel? A Way of Being, A Way of Seeing. Thompson will be joined in conversation with Lynn and Cele Seldon, travel writers based in Beaufort and the authors of guidebooks to Charleston and Savannah.

This free program will be live-streamed on the Conroy Center’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/patconroyliterarycenter. Attendees can also join the authors on Zoom for a more interactive experience by registering in advance through the Conroy Center’s Facebook page or at www.patconroyliterarycenter.org.

In Why Travel? A Way of Being, A Way of Seeing, Thompson writes about one subject as a way of exploring a multitude of others. With 40 years’ experience as an insatiable world wanderer and travel writer, he guides readers in discovering new ways of seeing themselves, as travelers, individuals, and world citizens, buttressing his approach with personal experience, practical advice, arresting anecdotes and real-world stories. Why Travel? differs from many a travel book in that its approach won’t be obsolete in six months’ time. It offers readers valuable direction, a renewed sense of wonder, and inspiration for their own explorations.

“Bill Thompson has an insatiable wanderlust,” said Robert Cox, former editor-in-chief of the Buenos Aires Herald. “He is motivated by curiosity and driven by wonder and is able to turn those impulses into words and photographs that send readers out into the world for the first (or hundredth) time. His new book Why Travel? answers itself. And it also leads readers of this world traveler into his world. It is a fascinating place.”

The Pat Conroy Literary Center is located at 601 Bladen Street in Beaufort and open to the public for tours from noon to 4 pm on Thursdays through Sundays, or other times by appointment.
