Paul Theroux: Writing Around the World

One of the world's most prolific travel writers, Paul Theroux boasts 7 languages and nearly 50 books under his belt. From Cairo to Cape Town to the South Pacific, Theroux reflects back on a life of railroads and bazaars... and why he finally settled in rural Hawaii. Join us as Paul Theroux describes life as an American surveying the wide, wide world outside... and how things have changed since he started writing 40 years ago.

Paul Theroux speaks with fellow BMI authors Mary-Ann Tirone Smith, Peter Hessler and Marnie Mueller on Thursday, Oct. 14, at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Beam Music Center Doc Rando Recital Hall.
