Leaving behind the life of being a flight attendant, after a career of 30 years with Delta Airlines, did not mean leaving behind the desire to explore the world. For many years after retiring from Delta Airlines, I traveled to places in the United States and Europe that were connected with book reviews I was presenting to book clubs in Dallas, Texas, and beyond.
For instance, while reviewing books about Winston Churchill and his wife, Clementine, I traveled to England, visiting his home at Chartwell, and his birthplace, Blenheim Palace.
A review about Milton Hershey took me to Hershey, PA, one of the most beautiful and fragrant towns in America! A tour of the fabulous Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, was inspired by the book, "Fortune's Children," by Arthur Vanderbilt, who told the story of his remarkable Vanderbilt family. These are a very few of the "research" tours I made during my 15 year career as a book reviewer.
In 2019, I decided it was time for a new career, which enables me to share with you my love of travel and literature. Thus was born, "Lurline Morrow's Literary and Travel Society."
I want to "Spark Joy," to borrow a popular idea from Marie Kondo, in my clients through sharing my love of travel and literature, both of which keep us engaged in a lifetime of learning, growth, and happiness.
