Join local author, Ellie Dias for a discusssion of her debut book

Big Red, How I Learned Simplicity from a Suitcase

which was inspired by her solo journey to the Himalayas. Hoping to experience simplicity and contentment in the Happiest Place on Earth, Dias carefully planned her trip of a lifetime. Little did she know that nearly every step would be fraught with challenges, mishaps, and detours.

Everything that could go wrong on her spiritual journey, did. It was a fiasco that left her wondering whether the Universe—via her Big Red Suitcase—was trying to teach her something.

Her story combines personal lessons, adventure, travel, growth, and humor as she struggles to jettison her Western ways while lugging a jampacked 95-pound suitcase.
