Larkspur Library Author Event: Laurie McAndish King talks about her new book: Lost Kidnapped Eaten Alive!: True Stories from a Curious Traveler
Monday, September 15, 2014
Laurie McAndish King will talk about her new book “Lost Kidnapped Eaten Alive!: True Stories from a Curious Traveler.” King is an award-winning travel writer and photographer who has published a collection of travel essays from around the world. King’s travels seem innocent in the planning stage, but surprising adventure follows as she finds herself tracking lions on foot and without a gun in Botswana, attempting to eat a horse in southern Italy, searching for an ancient Celtic goddess in Ireland, marrying a Maasai warrior in Kenya, and sampling the world’s most expensive coffee—brewed from the excrement of a small Balinese mammal. Whether she is lost in downtown Melbourne, kidnapped in the scorching Tunisian desert, or eaten alive by the blood-sucking denizens of tropical north Queensland, King’s stories—quirky, poignant, occasionally unsettling, and often funny—are inspiring and entertaining.
