Wednesday, February 18 — “1,000 Places to See Before You Die – Europe”

International bestselling author Patricia Schultz delves into Europe’s perennially popular—and often overlooked—destinations as only an insider can. From Krakow’s Market Square to Scotland’s remote and romantic Hebrides Islands, she uncovers the continent’s rich and complex history, diverse culture, and breathtaking beauty—both natural and man-made. Join her on a tour of Norway’s dramatic fjords, Moorish architecture in southern Spain’s Andalusia, and a quiet little-known corner of the Italian Riviera, as featured in her #1 New York Times bestselling travel book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die.
