Adventures By the Book offers worldwide opportunities for readers to connect with authors and their books on an intimate basis through unique, interesting, and adventurous travels and events.
MEET THE FOUNDER AND OWNER
Adventures By the Book was created from the notion that many readers and authors are looking for experiences that allow them to connect on a more intimate basis than through a traditional speaking or lecture format. Because owner and founder Susan McBeth has extensive experience working with publishers, publicists, agents, and authors, she is able to organize these unique events many times in conjunction with an author’s book tour so that the travel and honorarium expenses typically charged by authors can either be avoided altogether or kept to a minimum.
Susan has worked as an events coordinator for over twenty years, four and a half of which were spent specializing in author events as Director and Marketing of Events at Warwick’s Bookstore in La Jolla, California. Those events have ranged from small, in-store speaking and signing events for debut authors to large-scale signings with high-profile and bestselling authors, to special engagements of a more intimate nature, including dining with an author or happy hour events, to organizing offsite events in partnership with local businesses.
