Around the World: An Anthology of Travel Writing

Around the World: An Anthology of Travel Writing

Collected by Harvard Book Store

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. 

---

Around the World includes travel writing by the following authors: Lauren Jo Alicandro • Kristin Amico • Kitty Beer • Katie Feldman • Katy Llonko Gero • Ann Goodsell • Jane Eaton Hamilton • Sue Hertz • Kyle Ingrid Johnson • Megan Low • Stephen J. Lyons • Ariel Maloney • James Murphy • Paulina Reso • Michael Sano • Maia Silber • Jodie Noel Vinson • Taline Voskeritchian

Recommended by Harvard Book Store 2014

For many years now, one of the most universally beloved things about Harvard Book Store has been our staff's hand-picked book recommendations. These personal, eloquent blurbs have always been available to read throughout the store and on harvard.com, but in 2013, for the first time, we compiled all the year's recommendations into a little volume and printed it on our book-making robot, “Paige.”

It’s becoming an annual tradition! Here you have the 2014 edition of Recommended by Harvard Book Store. Inside, you’ll find recommendations for novels and memoirs, for art and history and science, for comics, picture books, and poetry. You’ll read about Unseen Academicals, and Men Explain Things to Me, and The Days of Abandonment, everything from ballet to crocodiles to Shakespeare. We at Harvard Book Store have eclectic taste, so whoever you are, whatever you love to read, there’s something here for you.

Paige Leaves: Essays Inspired by New England

Paige Leaves: Essays Inspired by New England

We at Harvard Book Store hail from regions far and wide, but we share a special place in our hearts for our current stomping ground, New England. In late summer of 2012, Harvard Book Store launched an essay contest collecting short essays (no more than 1,500 words) about or set in New England. We received entries from lifelong New Englanders and more recent arrivals, each with a different perspective on the region. The result is Paige Leaves, a new anthology printed here at Harvard Book Store on Paige M. Gutenborg, our book-making robot.
