Calendar Events GuatemalaBook Alert & Readings Falling Water, a collection of stories for travelers by David Mohrmann. “Travel is a journey through alternate realities, where borders blur and our experience depends on how we define it. FALLING WATER contains dreamlike scenarios with complex characters. There are engaging storylines, mystical encounters, and an absence of clear conclusions. As with dreams, the significance of these stories is not in the destinations, but in who you are as you approach the journey.” — Will Phillips, author of “Every Dreamer’s Handbook” Readings: Feb. 3, 6pm La Galería, Panajachel: Feb. 23, 3pm, Posada Santiago, Santiago Atitlán; March 6, 5:30pm, Rainbow Café, La Antigua
