Traveling has undergone some big changes in recent years.
Travel journalist and broadcaster Rudy Maxa provides tips to save money, maximize pleasure, and minimize hassles in Why Everything You Used to Know About Travel is Wrong on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.
Maxa offers suggestions about where you should go right now, how to save money on hotels, why you should stop hoarding those frequent flyer miles, and why you should never ride a camel named Katherine in Khiva, Uzbekistan.
Maxa is one of America's premier consumer travel experts. Known as public radio's "Savvy Traveler," he is also host and executive producer of Rudy Maxa's World, an Emmy Award-winning public television travel series. He is the star of more than three dozen travel DVDs; among his books are Access Los Angeles and 100 Countries, 5,000 Ideas: Where to Go, When to Go, What to See, What to Do.
In 2007, Maxa presented a series of three well-attended events at the Kansas City Public Library.
This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Kansas City Public Library.
Admission is free. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the event. RSVP at kclibrary.org or call 816.701.3407.
