Left Coast Writers® Launch

To Oldly Go: Tales of Adventurous Travel by the Over-60s is a brand new collection of remarkable travel tales from ‘Silver Travelers': Dervla Murphy traveling in Havana at the age of 74, Matthew Parris swimming the Thames at 60, and Colin Thubron climbing the last stronghold of the Assassins in his 60s are among the writers recounting their adventures, often defying expectations – and the odds – and going outside their comfort zone to take a less-traveled path in later life. Published with participation from the Silver Travel Advisor, this single volume brings together contributions – some original, some previously published – from independent-minded souls whose experiences have been entertaining, amusing, thrilling, and even a little irresponsible. Other contributors include Roger Bray, ‘Green Goddess' Diana Moran and Hilary Bradt.

Mary Jean (MJ) Pramik is an author, novelist, poet, travel writer, science reporter, and teacher. She has contributed to numerous magazines and journals, anthologies and travel books including Good Housekeeping, Odyssey, and the National Enquirer as well as Ophthalmology Times, Nature Biotechnology, Drug Topics, and Cosmetic Surgery News.

Anne Sigmon is the author of the memoir in progress Scrambling Back: One Woman’s Quest to Return to the Wild After Stroke and Autoimmune Disease.
