Award-winning author, Wendy Hinman will regale us with tales of sailing the world from her two true drama-on-the-high seas adventure books. Tightwads on the Loose is a light-hearted memoir about the 7-year, 34,000-mile voyage she took with her husband Garth aboard a small violently rocking sailboat where she alternated between feats worthy of Wonder Woman and Suzy Homemaker. Full of humor and armchair thrills, Tightwads on the Loose was selected for the literature program for Western Washington University, won the Journey Award for best true life adventure story, and was selected a top travel book for women. Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire recounts the gripping story of Garth’s disaster-riddled voyage around the globe as a teenager with his family in the 1970s. Both books have garnered favorable attention in national press, and Sea Trials was named a Kirkus Best Book of 2017 by Kirkus Reviews. Don’t miss this engaging storyteller and the intriguing photos from adventures afar.
