Monday July 24th 7 to 8 pm
From a Malaysian penthouse overlooking the turquoise Strait of Malacca, to a miniscule, under-furnished apartment in West Hollywood, Kate and her husband Dave travel the world living in other people’s houses. They tend to their gardens, sleep in their beds, and care for their pets. Along the way, other opportunities appear, and they follow: working and living in China, attending a wedding in Vietnam, and tracking wild animals in Indonesia. Eventually they buy a casita in Mexico that is nearly blown away in a hurricane, but they continue wayfaring, creating a web of connection with others throughout the world.
In Wanderland, Kate explores how this unconventional lifestyle, launched upon her early retirement, makes her alternately free and unsettled-especially as she faces a dire medical emergency requiring surgery and the pandemic hits. All along the journey, she questions what “home” really means.
After shopping, enjoy organic coffee, food, beer and wine upstairs at Bloomsbury Blends.
