Inspired Journeys

Editor Brian Bouldrey and Chicago-area contributors Jonathan Geltner, Goldie Goldbloom, Miles Harvey, David MacLean, and Rachel Webster visit Bookends & Beginnings to introduce a new anthology of pilgrimage stories, INSPIRED JOURNEYS: TRAVEL WRITERS IN SEARCH OF THE MUSE. Some of the authors set out in search of legends or artistic inspiration; others sought spiritual epiphany or fulfillment of a promise. Their journeys led them variously to Dracula's castle, Laura Ingalls Wilder's prairie, the Grimms' fairy-tale road, Mayan temples, Nathaniel West's California, the Camino de Santiago trail, Scott's Antarctica, the Marquis de Sade's haunted manor, or the sacred city of Varanasi.
