What's your agenda? Join us every Wednesday night from 8-9 pm EST as we bring you the latest in LGBT news and issues along with weekly special guest! Tonight's special guest: David Jedeikin speaks about his new book Wander The Rainbow. From his earliest memories, David Jedeikin has possessed an unquenchable thirst for world travel and — once he could read — for well-crafted writing. A native of Montreal, Canada, when he was four his family decamped for a three-year stint to the Mediterranean shores of suburban Tel Aviv. He vividly recalls early road trips across the region — through the fertile Jordan Valley, the arid Dead Sea — even through the Gaza Strip before it became a war zone; as well as later forays to Amsterdam, London, and New York. He studied English and Communications at Montreal’s McGill University. In his youth he devoured classic science fiction — Robert Silverberg, Frederik Pohl, Ursula Le Guin — along with works by George Orwell and Aldous Huxley. Today, he counts writers of travel, philosophy, and modern life such as Paul Theroux, Bill Bryson, Douglas Coupland, and Alain de Botton among his major influences. Jedeikin infuses his writing with connections between the disparate and the unexpected — a refreshing, insightful touch sure to appeal to the broadminded, modern reader.
