“Peace Corps Worldwide” Website Launch Today

pcww.jpgToday is the 48th anniversary of the signing of the Peace Corps Act by John F. Kennedy, an event which ushered in a whole new era of travel. In celebration, John Coyne and Marian Haley Beil announced the launch of a new online community intended for “Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs), Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs), their friends and families, and all who share a desire for international understanding.” Peace Corps Worldwide is a project of the non-profit Peace Corps Fund, and is not associated with the Peace Corps.

I’ll be writing a column on the new site, under “The Travel Guys”, and I’ll be joined there by my esteemed coauthor, Randy Wood.

Here is my first column: “Seeing the World and Bringing it Home.”

You’ll also find a plethora of globally themed blogs and book reviews of works by Peace Corps writers—including a review of this novel by RPCV Barry Kitterman, who served in Belize in the 1970s.
