Book Passage 27th Annual Travel Writers and Photographers Set for August 9-12, 2018.

Book Passage -- the Bay Area’s liveliest independent bookstore -- announced today that registration is open for the 27th edition of its world-famous Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, set to take place from August 9-12 in Corte Madera California. The conference has an extraordinary reputation among publishers, editors, and writers. Alumni have published books, articles, and photos—many as the direct result of lessons learned and contacts made at the conference.

The collegial atmosphere of this four-day conference attracts participants and faculty from all over the world, such as legendary travel writer, Tim Cahill, and travel guide mavens including Pauline Frommer from Frommer Guides and Nikki Ioakimedes from Moon Travel Guides. Photography faculty staff includes renowned expedition photographer Gordon Wiltsie.

In addition, the conference offers participants many opportunities for formal and informal meetings with faculty during lunches and evening presentations. Avalon Travel, publisher of Rick Steves, Moon Travel Guides, Road Trip USA, and Andy Steves, will host a special reception for faculty and participants on the evening of Saturday, August 11.

“Every summer some magic happens at Book Passage,” says acclaimed National Geographic Traveler and BBC Travel writer, Don George. “ For four days in August, some of the best travel writers, editors, photographers, publishers, and agents in the world convene in Corte Madera to share the art and heart of the work they love at the Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference”.

Book Passage has served the Bay Area for more than 40 years, providing the community with an array of author events, writing and language classes, and highly-respected annual conferences. A world renowned community bookstore, it offers a wide variety of books ranging from children’s literature to travel guides, from top-selling fiction to mystery novels.
