What is travel writing?
We think, simply put, that travel writing is an attempt to understand those things that happen to us when we are not at home. When we find ourselves in the unfamiliar. When we get away and discover someplace new.
Come Around the World with Harvard Book Store and our new anthology of travel writing—edited and assembled in the summer of 2015, and printed on our in-store book-making machine, Paige.
It’s hard for a bookstore to get away (all that brick and mortar), but we think reading about travel is a close second to the real thing. Travel writing takes us somewhere new and different. Or somewhere familiar, seen through someone else’s eyes.
We hope these essays will take you away. Even if it’s only for a few pages.
