The Benefits of Speaking in Hats

I may be seen in cargo pants and sneakers most of the time, but my fascination with headwear may very well make up for my general ambivalence to fashion trends.

Such a targeted fascination is a good thing. I recently found out that my story about Panamanian hats will appear in The Best Travel Writing Volume 11 (Travelers’ Tales/Solas House), to be released in the fall. I feel blessed—I have been a fan of the series since its inception.

The piece, which was previously published by Compass Cultura last year and won a gold medal in the Solas Awards, was also selected as a Travelers’ Tales Editor’s Choice a few weeks ago.
