brazilian launch of “my world book 1″


You are cordially invited to the Brazilian launch of My World Book 1, in São Paulo, SP, on Sunday, August 25th.

The book is about the author’s inexpensive trip around the world. As a lost American, fresh out of college and despairing of career, life, and family, he looks to reboot.  Invited to Europe, he decides to travel ever east on $10 a day for a year or more.  It is a tale of lost innocence, political awakening, love, assistance, and survival through the most dangerous miles of his life.

Ben will share a presentation on “How Lost Can A Lost American Get?,” including book excerpts and the launch video (both in English), with a discussion (in Portuguese) and book signing to follow.

Everyone dreams of running away from their responsibilities and simply roaming the world in search of adventure, and this memoir does an excellent job . . . . Part guidebook, part insight into complex family dynamics, part personal journal. . .[t]he writing is strong and entertaining. . .an engaging book. – The BookLife Prize, Publishers Weekly
