We're thrilled to report that our Adventurer in Chief, Karen T. Bartlett, won second place for travel book writing in the 2017 Society of American Travel Writers Eastern Chapter travel book awards. The winning book, A (mostly) Kids’ Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands and the Fort Myers Coast, arrived in bookstores earlier this year.
