Suzanne Roberts – Writers in the Woods Literary Speaker Series
October 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - October 10, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Suzanne Roberts is a travel writer, memoirist, and poet.

“If Michel de Montaigne and Chelsea Handler could get together in a bar in some far-flung part of the world and get good and drunk, they might dream up a book like this. This is not your parents’ travel writing! If you’re thirsting for a literary triple shot of sex, booze, and misadventures, Bad Tourist is your passport to an adventure you won’t want to come home from.”
– Michael P. Branch, author of Rants from the Hill and How to Cuss in Western
