Hear the Tales and Trials of an Accidental Travel Writer

Author and former Canadian diplomat, Terry Keenleyside, discusses how he started writing his travel/recipe books and the challenges of competing in this genre against the likes of Bill Bryson and Paul Therox.

Using slides, he will also talk about some of the travel and culinary experiences he and his wife encountered as they crossed Canada, researching Roaming the Big Land: Flavours of Canada, a collection of entertaining and informative stories that capture in a personal way the essential character of the country.
