Today we get to know a bit more about our Culture Travel Tuesday contributor, Jessica Voigts. Regular readers of A Traveler’s Library are familiar with Jessie, since she has been an almost monthly contributor for many moons.  She has been bringing us synopses of interviews with authors from her wonderfully useful website Wandering Educators.  Don’t be fooled by the title–teachers are not the only ones who can benefit from the broad array of travel advice offered at W.E.
