Places are ideas as much as they are geographic realities. Places carry stories and significance beyond the physical, and that’s often why we travel there. How are places marked by what happened there? What is the lure of the “elsewhere”? How is it all changed upon being discovered, photographed, written about? Finally: Was it really a bad trip if you live to tell a great tale? Join these three stellar travel writers, who have covered the world with pen and heel, on an intellectually rollicking journey navigated by San Francisco Chronicle weekday columnist Leah Garchik. (Open seating; no tickets needed!)
