With three million copies in print, Schultz’s “1,000 Places” book was the basis for a Travel Channel series and has been inspiring both armchair travelers and experienced globetrotters for many years.

The new full-color second edition, released in November 2011, is completely revised to include 500 new photographs, 200 new destinations, 28 new countries, and an emphasis on comprehensive travel experiences.

Schultz, a frequent travel speaker, will present a visual program of her favorite global travel destinations, followed by a Q&A and book signing.
