Erin Byrne & Guests - LitWings Event Series (Sausalito)

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 - 6:30pm

LitWings Event Series
Writers, filmmakers, and photographers sharing uplifting art that illuminates travel.

The event is hosted by writer Erin Byrne. The concept of LitWings symbolizes art that lifts the spirit, and the "lit-up" wings of illuminated travel, both of which are themes in Erin’s travel essays, poetry, screenplays and fiction; and in the work of each presenter.

LitWings brings together international writers, photographers, and filmmakers to highlight their wide-ranging work, the paths of their careers, and the creative process of one particular project. Past presenters include National Geographic photographers, New York Times bestselling authors, and Emmy award winning filmmakers sharing work that highlights Vietnam, Azerbaijan, Nairobi, Cuba, Scotland, and many other places around the globe.

Erin Byrne is host of LitWings, author of Wings: Gifts of Art, Life, and Travel in France, editor of Vignettes & Postcards from Morocco and Vignettes & Postcards from Paris, and writer of The Storykeeper film. Erin teaches writing in Sausalito, Paris, and on Deep Travel trips.
