New Canaan Library is pleased to welcome back travel journalist and travel concierge Susan Farewell. Ms. Farewell is here on Thursday, May 22 to speak about new, enjoyable options in adventurous travel.  Everyone is welcome to join her in the Adrian Lamb Room at 7:00 p.m. to hear about a whole new way to see the world.

Adventure travel used to mean some pretty strenuous agendas - along the lines of trekking across Nepal or roughing it in far-flung places. Today, adventure travel can mean anything from biking on the back roads of Vermont to a guided walking safari in South Africa. Susan Farewell will talk about the many new, more do-able options in adventurous travel for individuals, couples and families.
