We’re talking about Books That Make You Discover Yourself on an Exotic Adventure

Books take us away, to different places, different times, cultures and people. The external adventure is often just the backdrop to the character’s more internal journey of self-discovery. The great thing about books is how we can peer through the eyes of the protagonist, no matter how flawed they might be.

Award-winning author Gerald Everett Jones is back to talk about his latest book, “Harry Harmabee’s Kenyan Sundowner”, which tells the story of a lonely and misguided widower who travels to East Africa in search of a good time. What he encounters instead is a whole new reason to live.

Gerald is a freelance writer based in Santa Monica, California. He is a member of the Writers Guild of America, the Dramatists Guild, Women’s National Book Association, and Film Independent (FIND), as well as a director of the Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC). He is also a masterful editor and contributor to the Webby-Award nominated The BookFest.
