Corte Madera: Book Passage; things to do

101 North 

Book Passage  51 Tamal Vista Blvd., (800) 999-7909, (415) 927-0960.  Daily 9-9. 

This bookstore has the best collection of travel books and mysteries around and is a joy to browse.  A cafe serves coffees and simple foods, and author events are scheduled regularly.

I attended one last Saturday that featured author Chris Baker—an authority on Cuba and author of the Moon Cuba guidebook--talking about . . . Cuba.  His educational presentation included interesting history and personal insights collected over the more than three decades he has traveled there.  Everything you need to know to travel to Cuba you’ll find in his book.  Chris also leads group tours for National Geographic as well as motorcycle tours

Note:  Americans have been allowed to travel to Cuba for a while now, and it should continue to get easier.  On Monday, the United States and Cuba restored full diplomatic relations.  More . . .

More ideas for exploring Northern California.
