Author of Crossing the Heart of Africa: An Odyssey of Love and Adventure

Book talk and signing at Main Library

Journalist Julian Smith is madly in love with his girlfriend of seven years . . . but terrified by the idea of making a lifelong commitment.

Inspired by the story of British adventurer Ewart Grogan, who marched the length of Africa in 1898 to win the hand of the woman he loved, Julian faces down his fears by retracing an incredible 4,500-mile journey from South Africa to Sudan, just months before his own marriage

He is the author of travel guidebooks to El Salvador, Ecuador, Virginia and the Four Corners, and has won the country's top travel writing award from the Society of American Travel Writers.
