Wander Woman - Beth Santos in conversation with Tami Fairweather

Join us for a special evening with author Beth Santos featuring her new book, WANDER WOMAN: How to Reclaim Your Space, Find Your Voice, and Travel the World, Solo, when she appear at Octavia Books in conversation with writer Tami Fairweather.

If you’ve ever wanted to travel solo, founder of global women’s travel community Wanderful, Beth Santos, is here to tell you that you’re not alone.

Travel isn’t just about how many passport stamps you have—it’s about your mindset. In WANDER WOMAN, Santos busts myths about who can travel, empowering women to uncover the confidence they need to see the world for themselves, by themselves, and giving them the lifelong tools to challenge your preconceptions, try something new, and get out of your comfort zone—whether that’s halfway around the world or just down the street. 

As much a how-to guide as it is a source of inspiration and support, WANDER WOMAN invites us to be mindful about why we travel, who it affects, and how we can make it better for everyone.

Whether you’re ready to chase your Under the Tuscan Sun fantasy, are preparing for study abroad, or just want to feel more comfortable on business trips, Wander Woman is your must-have guide to exploring the world without fear.

Beth Santos is the founder and CEO of Wanderful, a global women’s travel community and lifestyle brand. She is also the driving force behind the WITS Travel Creator Summit, the Bessie Awards, which honor women in travel, and Wanderfest, the first major outdoor travel festival by and for women. Regularly recognized as a changemaker in the travel industry, Beth was named Godmother of the Azamara Onward cruise ship in 2022 and strives to amplify underrepresented voices through her work as a speaker, industry consultant, and small business coach. She is a graduate of Wellesley College and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, and when she’s not traveling the world, she can be found exploring her home city of Boston with her husband and two daughters.

Tami Fairweather is a writer, communications consultant, connector, sometimes event planner, and lover of fresh air, travel, magic, little rituals, and the window seat. Born and raised bi-coastally in Massachusetts and Washington State, her chosen home is New Orleans, where she holds great reverence for the culture bearers who give the city all its soul. She's the co-author of the Frommer's New Orleans travel guide with Lavinia Spalding.

Few cities anywhere are as vibrant, historically rich, and just plain fun as New Orleans. But it's not a "dummy proof" destination. Too many travelers leave town wondering what all the fuss is about.That doesn't happen to those carrying this book.
