Join us as we hear from Falls Church resident, Susan Gillerman Boggs, as she shares her new memoir, JOURNEY ACROSS TIME. The book opens a window to life in South Asia, which has changed vastly since Susan Gillerman Boggs began living there as a diplomat’s wife in 1985. In a captivating first-person narrative, Boggs takes the reader to remote places, many now closed to visitors. She describes experiences both exotic and hilarious, and adventures impossible to replicate. The author invites us to share the color and pageantry of festivals, religious rites, and parades of caparisoned elephants.
Susan Gillerman Boggs, a native of St. Louis, Missouri, began traveling internationally at a young age. She earned a Master of Fine Arts in Musicology from Boston University and King’s College, London, before working for opera companies across the United States in costume design and production. After her marriage to a U.S. diplomat in 1986, she spent 14 years living and traveling widely in South Asia. Susan now lives with her husband in Falls Church, Virginia.
