Think your travel stories are incredible to hear because they were adventurous, heroic and life-altering? Well, that just might make author Tim Cahill laugh. The acclaimed travel writer has faced every travel situation one could dream up, as well as ones never imaginable. If the titles of his books, including A Wolverine Is Eating my Leg and Pass the Butterworms: Remote Journeys Oddly Rendered don’t provide enough explanation into his crazy travel adventures, skeptics (or fans) can listen to the author’s own accounts when he joins with National Geographic writer Don George in an evening of travel discussion and readings on Thursday, Aug. 8, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. $10. 8pm. 415.927.0960.
