Seg. 1: Leaving And Waving | Seg. 2: Bibliofiles On Travel

Segment 1: In 1990, Deanna Dikeman took a photo of her parents waving goodbye to her as she drove away.

She continued to take these pictures for decades and today, what started as random keepsakes is now a series of photos spanning through her father’s death until her mother passed away. Since releasing “Leaving and Waving,” she has also received comments from people who can see moments from their own lives, reflected in hers.

Segment 2, beginning at 10:40: Trying to get away, but don't want to bring the Clorox wipes? Try these books.

Enjoy this guide to the best books to take you on a trip from the comfort of your own home, courtesy of the bibliofiles.
