National Geographic Society panel 22 September

I'll be speaking at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, DC, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 22 September 2004, as part of a "National Geographic Live! Fantastic Journeys" panel discussion on A 21st Century Grand Tour :

During the 18th and 19th centuries, the so-called Grand Tour allowed members of the upper classes to acquire knowledge and sophistication by voyaging abroad. Today, this ambitious way of seeing the world is not limited to the wealthy. At this presentation travelers from different backgrounds tell how it can be done regardless of budget. Hong Kong based photographer JUSTIN GUARIGLIA has handled assignments for National Geographic Traveler and other publications. EDWARD HASBROUCK, a travel agent whose specialty is organizing around-the-world trips, authored the acclaimed Practical Nomad series of travel books. LINNEA LUNDGREN is a "domestic engineer" and writer who took a break from her career to travel around the world. The discussion will be moderated by KEITH BELLOWS, editor-in-chief of National Geographic Traveler magazine.

The National Geographic Society's Grosvenor Auditorium is at 17th and M Streets, N.W., 3 blocks from either the Farragut North or Farragut West Metro stations. Single tickets are US$14 for NGS members and subscribers to National Geographic magazines, US$16 for non-members; season subscriptions to the NGS "Fantastic Journeys" lecture series are also available. Tickets go on sale starting Tuesday, 7 September 2004.
