They Only Eat Their Husbands
Traveling Cheap, Living Cheap, and Living Your Dream

Whether you want to travel on a shoestring budget, live within your means, or get inspired by a woman who backpacked the world alone, Fresh City Life My Branch has it for you this week!

On Thursday, August 11 at 6:00 p.m. at the Ross-University Hills Branch, travel through Guatemala by Chicken Bus. Local librarian Anna Winkel spent the fall of 2008-spring of 2009 traveling, studying, and volunteering in Guatemala. This slide show is for you whether you're an armchair travel fan or if you have questions about making the most of your trip to Guatemala! Journey from the old capital of Antigua to the shores of Lago Atitlan to the mountains of Alta Verapaz. Bring your questions and your curiosity!

Maybe you're budget concerns are closer to home. If so, Laura Daily of has advice for you in How to Live on the Cheap! Join her on Saturday, August 13 at 2:00 p.m. at the Bear Valley Branch to learn how to thrive, even during this recession! She'll talk about ways to save on groceries, dining out, shopping, travel, and attending local cultural events. She'll explain the ins and outs of the deal of the day sites, how to find free and low cost classes and workshops, and how to safely navigate e-clubs and other online loyalty savings websites. There may even be a gift card giveaway!

Want to know what it's like to pack up and follow your dream? Our continuing Colorado Authors Series presents Cara Lopez Lee, author of They Only Eat Their Husbands: A Memoir of Alaskan Love, World Travel, and the Power of Running Away. She'll talk about her 9 years in the Last Frontier of Alaska, where she got involved in a love triangle with 2 exciting alcoholics, and the year where she ran away to backpack around the world alone. Ms. Lee is the creator of the Girls Trek Too blog and workshop, dedicated to inspiring women to approach life as an adventure. Join us and be inspired at Schlessman on Saturday, August 13 at 2:00 p.m. She'll have books to sell and sign.
