Meet, Plan, Go! - Los Angeles 9-6-11
Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
Here’s your opportunity to become more involved with the Meet, Plan, Go! community. We will be hosting informal local meetups in our various cities in the months leading up to our Nationwide Event.
Come join our Los Angeles hosts, Lisa & George Rajna, for a special book reading with Rachel Friedman - author of "The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure".
Rachel Friedman’s life was as neat, orderly and structured as any high-achieving, parent-pleasing college student when she suddenly decided to abandon the American mantra of “go to school, get good grades, get a job.” A perennial good girl who unexpectedly finds that her carefully calibrated life plans no longer inspire her, she makes a series of life- changing decisions – first dropping out of music school and then off the beaten path altogether – and finds a world of adventure across Ireland, Australia and South America.
