Derek Walcott, the Nobel Prize winning poet, once said, “I read; I travel; I become.” No doubt Walcott would have appreciated an opportunity to combine reading and travel in a way that highlights books. It’s what inspired author Richard Kreitner to write his new book appropriately titled “Booked: A Traveler’s Guide to Literary Locations Around the World.”
