“Eat Pray Love,” an upcoming movie…

August 9, 2010

you may have heard of?  with some actress by the name of Julie Roberts?  with a monster holds list that’s growing and Best Bets copies that are checked out, how ’bout a display of travel books?  in honor of the forthcoming movie, Globe Corner Bookstore created a display of travelogues:

Gertrude Bell: Queen of the Desert, Shaper of Nations” by Georgina Howell
Passionate Nomad: The Life of Freya Stark” by Jane Fletcher Geniesse
Down the Nile: Alone in a Fisherman’s Skiff” by Rosemary Mahoney
The Ordeal of Elizabeth Marsh: A Woman in World History” by Linda Colley
Out of Africa and Shadow on the Grass” by Isak Dinesen
“Travelers’ Tales the Best Women’s Travel Writing 2010”

also, on the newly redesigned NoveList (lovely!), there is a very relevant and helpful list of ‘Women Travelers’ for additional display titles (under the ‘Recommended Reading Lists,’ ‘Adult,’ ‘Nonfiction,’ ‘Travel Writing’).

and in case you missed the news last month, the planned book by Elizabeth Gilbert’s ex-husband, Michael Cooper, was cancelled by Hyperion – apparently his tell-all wasn’t controversial enough.
