Are you longing for summer. Have Sun, sandy beaches and those carefree lazy days become a distant memory? On our next show, we will speak with Author and lover of beaches from Maine to Hawaii, Janet Spurr. She loves them and feels safer there than anywhere else. Despite stories to the contrary, a vacation at one still brings to mind happy memories and relaxing time with friends and family.
In her book, Beach Chair Diaries: Summer Tales From Maine To Maui, we are given through essays and vignettes a heightened appreciation for those small summer delights like flip flops, or finding the perfect wave. Why does Spurr love beaches so much? Are they a type of therapy? How have they changed in the years she has been frequenting them? Janet Spurr is devoted to them and will share her top ten list beach etiquette during this interview.
When not enjoying beaches from east to west Spurr conducts writing workshops sharing tips on how to successfully publish books and achieving dreams.
For a fun-filled show which will warm up cold winter days, please join us as we talk with her on our next Books And Beyond. Below are details about Janet and information about how you can attend this next show.
