Strong Sense of Place

By Strong Sense of Place

One lifetime is too short to visit everywhere and meet everyone. That's why we love books with a strong sense of place — they let us travel the world in our imagination. In each episode of our podcast, we explore one destination and talk about what makes that place different from everywhere else on earth. Then we recommend five books that took us to that place on the page. We're on a trip around the globe, one great read at a time. Please join us!
