Blogging To Take You Around The International World Of Literature
Welcome to my blog where together we can explore and journey through the many paths that independent literature can take you. We will visit book and literary festivals from around the world and local events as well. As with any journey we can expect to find old things and new, and also find the unexpected! Life is a journey, so you are invited to follow me with my own.
We Make a Difference
Our goal is to make a difference by sharing with you our own knowledge and experiences, whether it is by travelling or learning along the way. The more people who read this blog and share what they learn here will be partners in bringing the joy of reading and the opportunity to attend some literary events where they will connect with others. As one person said, life is lived by “small steps.” Every step a reader of this blog takes with them is a step in the direction of progress.

Remember, one small step continues your journey.
