About Strong Sense of Place

The world is a large and amazing place filled with fascinating people, and one lifetime is too short to visit and get to know them all. That’s why our favorite books have a strong sense of place. They help us travel — at least in our imaginations — to destinations all over the globe, to meet people we might never get to know in real life.

Not only is the trip a whole lot of fun, we fervently believe that reading good books increases empathy. Empathy is good for you and good for the world around us. We want more of that.

So we created Strong Sense of Place — a podcast and website dedicated to literary travel and the books we love.

Join us on the adventure at strongsenseofplace.com.
