Mother, Daughter & Girlfriend Getaways
World Footprints is joined by New York Times Bestselling Author of The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd, and her daughter Ann Kidd Taylor. The mother/daughter pair talk about their new book, Traveling with Pomegranates, which chronicles their journey of self-discovery that they embarked on together when the idea of Bees was just an idea in Sue’s head and when both she and Ann were at a crossroads in their lives. In this wise and engrossing dual memoir, she and her daughter, Ann, chronicle their travels together through Greece and France at a time when each was on a quest to redefine herself and rediscover each other. As Sue struggles to enlarge a vision of swarming bees into a novel, and Ann ponders the classic question of what to do with her life, this modern-day Demeter and Persephone explore an array of inspiring figures and sacred sites. They also give voice to the most protean of human connections: the bond of mothers and daughters.
Then National Geographic author and women’s travel expert Marybeth Bond, the “Gutsy Traveler”, joins us to talk about great girlfriend getaways. Bond has traveled – along, with her gal pals, daughters, sisters and mother and husband – researching travel books, articles and for adventure. She reminds us that gal-pal time and getaways are good for women’s health.
