About our Travel Adventure:
June 22-26, 2024
The Pacific Northwest, sometimes referred to as Cascadia, is a geographic region in western North America bounded by its coastal waters of the Pacific Ocean to the west and, loosely, by the Rocky Mountains to the east.
Known for its dramatic coastline, snow-capped mountains and lush forests, it is also home to many acclaimed and bestselling authors.
We look forward to introducing you to this stunning region from Seattle, Washington, to Portland, Oregon, in an intimate Adventure in which you will meet and share activities with New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Kate Quinn, Susan Meissner, Robin Oliveira, Marie Bostwick, and others, in our five day, four night Pacific Northwest Adventure by the Book!
More details coming soon.
