The Traveling Bookbox Show

An unusual touring exhibition of book-themed shadowboxes. Many are now being housed at The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in California.
“I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

West with the Night

by Beryl Markham

I loved this autobiography by British-born Kenyan aviator, racehorse-trainer and good old-fashioned adventurer Beryl Markham. Why am I so nostalgic for an Africa long since past, and so at odds with my own domestic tendencies? Because, living and traveling there, one captures fragments, and they transport you - the light, people, the possibility, the warthogs.
