5 Things Iranians and Brits Have in Common by Lois Pryce   

Back in January we hosted the launch of Lois Pryce’s Revolutionary Ride, her book about her motorcycle travels through Iran.  There were Persian snacks, Persian music and so many people wanting to hear more about her travels. Not only did we have her come to speak at the Stanfords Travel Writers Festival (listen to the podcast here), but she was also the subject of The Yes Tribe’s Adventure Book Club held in our basement last night. We are also planning an event in our Long Acre store with Lois, so keep an eye on our events page.

We love having her around so much that we are one step away from getting her to join our Fantasy Football League, giving her a locker and getting her to bring back magnets from her holidays for our staff room fridge.
