The Marsh Berkeley presents
Jeff Greenwald’s “Strange Travel Suggestions”
Saturdays at 8:30pm
"Peculiar travel suggestions," Kurt Vonnegut wrote in Cats Cradle, "are dancing lessons from God." Indeed, it's those unpredictable discoveries and encounters that make world travel so illuminating. Oakland-based Jeff Greenwald — best known for his best-selling books, including Shopping for Buddhas, The Size of the World and now Snake Lake — brings the hand of destiny to this work: an improvised monologue inspired by the joys of wanderlust. Audience members step onstage, and spin a huge, colorful Wheel of Fortune. Round and 'round it spins, and where it stops, our story begins....
Jeff Greenwald has visited six continents, working as a writer, performer, and photographer. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic Adventure, Afar, Salon, and many other publications. He also serves as Executive Director of Ethical Traveler (www.ethicaltraveler.org), a global alliance dedicated to human rights, environmental protection, and the ambassadorial potential of world travel. Jeff’s new book, Snake Lake—set in Kathmandu during the “People Power” revolution of 1990—was released in November 2010 by Counterpoint Press.
