TableTalk: The Expat Talks – Panelists (15 July 2010)

Author, editor and blogger - Carolyn Vines

In the week leading up to the first TableTalk – The Expat Talks or “What’s a nice (Black American) girl like you doing in a place like this?” on 15 July 2010 – I will be introducing the ladies who have been kind enough to be a part of our panel.

It’s therefore my extreme pleasure to make my first introduction:

Carolyn Vines

Carolyn is an American expat living in the Netherlands with her multicultural family. She is an author, editor and blogger.

I “met” Carolyn via her blog, Black and Abroad, which was the 2009 winner of the coveted Best International Blog – Judge’s Choice – at the Black Weblogs Award.

Carolyn has a  strong academic background which is reflected in her master’s degree in Latin American literature. She has taught both English and Spanish at universities in the US, as well as in her adopted home, the Netherlands.

Carolyn’s memoir – also called “Black and (A)Broad” – will be published in September. Far from being yet another  “how-to”  book about travel, Carolyn’s book is a very personal tale focusing on how traveling and moving overseas have transformed her identity as a black woman.

Tune in to hear more about Carolyn’s and the other ladies’ stories this Thursday!

      Thank you! I am very much looking forward to it.

      If the time difference (and having to work the next day) makes it impossible for you to tune it live, please check out the recording, which will be posted on the same site (with a link here, too) after the live event is over!

  3. I am a huge fan of Carolyn Vines! I am looking forward for her book to release September. I am curious to know how she did it. Transitioning from US to Europe. I too want to live in europe someday.
