Four UI Grads Featured in 'Best Women's Travel Writing 2010'

Four University of Iowa students are featured in the recently published collection Best Women's Travel Writing 2010 (Travelers' Tales, February 2010).

Travelers' Tales award-winning series, Best Women's Travel Writing, has been showcasing the world's finest female travel narratives every year since 2004. In the 2010 volume, editor and UI Nonfiction Writing Program student Stephanie Elizondo Griest spotlights 27 stories set in the most far-flung of places, from an icy Ecuadoran volcano-top to a cozy Persian kitchen. The collection also features Writers' Workshop student Marisa Handler and Nonfiction Writing Program students Jennifer Percy and Kendra Greene. The group will be launching the book at Prairie Lights on Sunday, March 28 at 4 p.m.
