Many of us are experiencing intense wanderlust these days. Join us for a fascinating, free Zoom discussion with author Dave Seminara, a self-described “pathological traveler.” Seminara’s new book, Mad Travelers: A Tale of Wanderlust, Greed and the Quest to Reach the Ends of the Earth, is both a true-crime travelogue about a young con man (William Simon Baekeland) and an exploration of wanderlust and why we travel. Dave Seminara will be in conversation with Megan Fernandez.

Dave Seminara is a writer, former diplomat, and pathological traveler who lives in St. Pete. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, The Washington Post, and dozens of other publications. He is also the author of Footsteps of Federer: A Fan’s Pilgrimage Across 7 Swiss Cantons in 10 Acts.

Megan Fernandez is a lifestyle editor for Indianapolis Monthly magazine and has been published in the New York Times and Sports Illustrated.
