Kim Brown Seely: Uncharted: A Couple's Epic Empty-Nest Adventure Sailing From One Life to Another

Join us in welcoming Kim Brown Seely in support of her new book, Uncharted: A Couple's Epic Empty-Nest Adventure Sailing From One Life to Another on Monday, March 2 at 7:00 PM. 

Like Cheryl Strayed and M. Wylie Blanchet, Kim Brown Seely reminds us that the best travel narratives are about emotional explorations even more than physical ones. What makes this book exceptional is the way its journey slows you down and expands your soul.


Kim Brown Seely and her husband were at a crossroads. With the economy in freefall, their jobs stagnant, and their youngest son moving away to college, the couple decided to face another unknown. They impulsively
purchased a too-big sailboat, learned how to sail, and embarked on a 700-nautical-mile voyage through the Inside Passage. Bound for an expanse of untamed wilderness—the stunningly wild Great Bear Rainforest of the Northwest—in search of the elusive white Kermode bear, the couple begin to discover who they are as individuals and as a couple in a pivotal moment in their lives.

Honest, self-effacing, and full of humor and generosity, this unforgettable memoir is at once a breathtaking adventure tale and a lyrical meditation on the changing nature of love.

KIM BROWN SEELY, a 2016 Lowell Thomas Journalist of the Year, has worked in publishing on both coasts, including as senior editor at Travel + Leisure, contributing editor at National Geographic Adventure, and travel editor at Microsoft and Amazon. Her writing has also appeared in Outside, National Geographic Traveler, Sunset, Coastal Living, and Virtuoso Life.
