Air Schooner #9: Travel Writing

Stephanie Elizondo Griest


Awarding-winning travel writer Stephanie Elizondo Griest (Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana) reads from her work about rumba queens in Cuba, and ruminates on the future, history, and ethical dilemmas of travel writing. Daniel Wallace reads from his powerful work on his traveling to Syria and living in the Old Quarter of Damascus under the Assad regime. Hosts Scott Winter and Stacey Waite moderate this fascinating discussion about "getting under the veneer of a place."
