Read Beyond the Beaten Path: Author Talk with Edward Lynch

Saturday, June 25, 2022

Author Edward Lynch will discuss his book Journeys to One Hundred Countries: From a Lifetime of Exploration.

Imagine being able to travel the world without leaving home. World traveler, cruise ship lecturer, and accomplished storyteller Dr. Ed Lynch has traveled to over 100 countries and territories, visiting every continent except Antarctica. In this fascinating volume, he provides evocative descriptions of 100 of his travel experiences. From the Norwegian fjords to Cape Horn, from the richest country in the world to some of the poorest, Lynch takes you on one hundred journeys that are much deeper than a list of where to stay and where to eat. This is not just another travel book. Lynch is a trained observer and an acclaimed writer and commentator. His travel adventures include confronting a fascist dictator in Chile, taking a temple tuk-tuk tour in Sri Lanka, helping Spaniards celebrate their freedom, and nearly getting killed on a dark street in Ecuador. A compelling mix of the strange, the unique, the humorous, and the poignant makes this book a must for both globetrotters and armchair travelers.

Edward Lynch is a Botetourt County resident and a member of the Kiwanis Club.
