Two UNBC Readings

“Understanding Bolivia:
a Traveler’s History”

a reading by
Vivien Lougheed

Vivien, a long time resident of Prince George, started her life of exploration when she got her first bicycle. She graduated to mountain hiking and finally exploring countries such as Tibet, China, Guatemala and Iran. When she met her writing husband John Harris, (who taught her how to write!) she began sharing her experiences in newspaper and magazine articles and finally in books.

Vivien will read from her latest book Understanding Bolivia: a Traveler's History, and from Forbidden Mountains, a story about her illegal journey through Tibet. She will also read from works of fiction published in Geist Magazine and other literary journals.
