We're excited to host local, Illinois author, Raluca Barbu, for a virtual event about her newly published book,American Vacation. 12,000 Miles Into the Wild West. The book is an homage to the great American outdoors. It is the first book to tell the story of a writer, from an ex-communist country, who experienced the great outdoors of the emblematic American West. She and her husband traveled 12,000 miles for 45 days across 19 states. They visited 35 national, state, and tribal parks and hiked 170 miles, through breath-taking natural landmarks, from 260 feet below sea level to 14,000 feet of altitude.
Raluca will share about her travel adventures and writing experiences, read from her book, answer questions, and screen a 15-minute presentation of high-quality photos taken during her trip.At the end of the program, we’ll host a quiz. The winner will win a copy of Raluca’s book!
