This Wednesday, November 9, Church Hill’s Karen Chase will be featured at The Vicarious Travelers Series at the Richmond Public Library, speaking about her solo Bonjour 40 adventure and giving away sets of her photographs, printed and ready for framing.
You know ChurchHillian Karen A. Chase. But did you know she just released Bonjour 40: A Paris Travel Log (40 years, 40 days, 40 seconds) as an e-book on Kindle with Nook and iBook coming soon?
Bonjour 40 is a travel journal-style memoir of Karen’s solo adventures as she celebrated turning the “BIG 4-0” in the City of Lights, art, romance and food. Along the way, she learns the beauty of simplicity, the power of self-expression and that in Paris, art is “seeing life itself”. Bonjour 40 is illustrated with photography taken by Karen, an avid photographer. The striking images sprinkled throughout bring her mid-life passage to life.
