Feb 2013 Happy Hour

Cheers to another super successful happy hour.  We had a great time at Rice Paper in Phoenix with the beers on tap and the spring roll bar;)  Pictures from the evening can be found at https://picasaweb.google.com/116235308663298359566/FebHappyHour2013?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCJrRofC-u-7_pgE&feat=directlink .  If you missed happy hour the next one will be on March 15!  The book club is the next event.  It is happening on Feb 7 at 7pm.  Join us to discuss 'Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away.'  Bring yourself, your sweet tooth and your love of reading. Snacks and sparkling wine will be provided.  If you are interested please email me at lizziekazan@gmail.com . If reading isn't your thing but drinking is, we will be taking a trip to the wineries in Page Springs on Feb 16.  We will be meeting at the Deer Valley Park and Ride located at I17 and Bell road at 9am.  If you plan to attend, please let me know via email!

Peace Corps Experience: Write & Publish Your Memoir

“Tell your Peace Corps story, but first study this book.”
Robert Klein, PC Oral History Project, Kennedy Library


Years On and Other Travel Essays

The author describes how he hitchhiked along bleak Arizona highways, hacked a path through wooded Honduran mountains, avoided caiman while riding bulls in Bolivia and grizzlies as he hunted caribou in bush Alaska, ran for his life after getting involved in Mexican politics and more.

2011 Peace Corps Writers’ Travel Book Award Recipient

“The best and rarest of ex-pats: the Yankee gone native.”
Tony D’Souza, author of Whiteman.

Peace Corps Chronology; 1961-2010

“A classic.”
Craig Carrozzi, author of The Road to El Dorado.


Whispering Campaign; Stories from Mesoamerica
