Good travel writing does double duty: First, it must grab readers and plunge them into the heart of new places and unfamiliar cultures and second, it just has to be good writing. Colorado author Bill Giebler finds that magical equation in his travel essay about India, “The Tea in Me,” which appears in The Best Travel Writing, Volume 10: True Stories from Around the World from Travelers' Tales Guides. Giebler will introduce his prize-winning entry — and the book’s paperback edition — at Tuesday’s book signing. A $5 voucher gets you into the reading and also goes toward purchase of the book, which sells for $19.95.

Denver’s Lighthouse Writers Workshop brings the acclaimed and oft-awarded British author (best known for Remains of the Day) to town this weekend for a sold-out Saturday class at the literary center, but Kazuo Ishiguro will first appear Friday in conversation with Colorado fiction writer Erika Krouse at Auraria’s King Center. Ishiguro will sign books, including his newest, the Buried Giant, after the talk. Krouse, who will lead the interview without a script, has a book of her own, Contenders, to be released by Rare Bird Books on March 31.
