Well I must say that my mom was smitten after her first taste in the archipelago, even if it was a short day trip out to Fjäderholmarna!  I must admit I also really enjoyed myself and since my friend Anna-Maria was still here, she suggested for us to take another day trip out to Vaxholm.

Author Interview: James Gough on his YA novel, Cloak

Rowling, Carroll, Riordan, Baum – it’s time to make room up on that shelf of elite writing goodness for another author. Scoot over. It won’t hurt. James Gough, take your place. His new novel, Cloak, is a classic, an eminently readable, interesting, extraordinary book. If you’re like me, you’re already imagining a movie. But I digress.

Are students inspired by Teacher Travels? YES! For proof, we asked global educator and world traveler Lillie Teacha Marshall, a teacher in the Boston Public Schools in Massachusetts - and she asked her students.

Book Offers Glimpse into life of Ghana's street children

With great insight, author Kwei Quartey brings the children of Accra's streets to life in his latest book, Children of the Street. If you're like me, you haven't read a lot of fiction about or from Ghana. I'm not sure whether it was from a lack of authors that have been translated, or that the literature isn't accessible to me, but I had no idea what I was missing. Kwei Quartey, a doctor and intercultural author that delves deeply into Ghanaian culture in his books, is the real deal.
