Sit down at the Club and travel to Morocco with five award-winning travel writers who have collaborated with several other writers on Vignettes & Postcards from Morocco. Shake off the holiday blues as the chergui (desert wind) whips reality into fantasy, from Casablanca to Tangier, from Marrakech to the Sahara, from a rose festival in the countryside to a betrothal fair high in the Atlas Mountains, in alleyways and on rooftops, in the souks and on plains scattered with ruins. Come hear some of the 33 stories and poems, tales of quests and mysteries, of traditions and memory and wisdom, that seek the ancient and celebrate the exotic in Morocco. Vignettes & Postcards from Morocco is a Foreword Book of the Year finalist.
