Most famous for his roles in movies, on stage, and in TV shows, former “brat packer” Andrew McCarthy pursued a parallel career as an award-winning travel writer for National Geographic Traveler. Conversing with Traveler editor at large Don George, McCarthy will discuss the transformative power of travel, a theme underlying his new book The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down. Hear how the cross pollination of two seemingly disparate careers, both based in the art of story telling, has set him on a unique course.
