Event Details

This holiday season, San Francisco’s Ferry Building will be transformed into “The Merry Building” with the debut of the first annual gingerbread exhibition, consisting of more than a dozen one-of-a-kind gingerbread creations located throughout the marketplace from various shops and restaurants. The main attraction will be an oversized gingerbread replica of the Ferry Building – spanning five feet in length with a two-and-a-half foot clocktower – which will be on display at the center of the marketplace.

mon09dec6:00 pm7:00 pmAuthor Event and Book Signing: Left Coast Writers®: Tania Romanov - Never a Stranger6:00 pm - 7:00 pm Book Passage, One Ferry Building

Event Details

Tania Romanov hangs from the final limb of a family tree of generations of unintentional travelers—exiles, refugees, displaced people. She grew up with stories of exile—stories of adventure. Perhaps that’s why, as an adult, Tania started living her own adventures—and hasn’t stopped since. In India, she learned that to Indians the way she mourned her husband was far less personal than their custom of dropping cremated bodies into a river; in Japan, that her ancestors could find her in the oddest of circumstances. In Bhutan, she found family, and in Namibia she learned to ease her fears of being trapped in her own past.In Never a Stranger, Tania shares those experiences and more, unforgettable stories of travel, connection, and self-discovery.

Tania Romanov is an award-winning travel photographer and author of Mother Tongue: A Saga of Three Generations of Balkan Women. A Solas Award winner, Tania’s work has been featured in multiple travel anthologies, including the Best Travel Writing series. Born in the former Yugoslavia, Tania fled the country and spent her childhood in a refugee camp in Trieste, Italy, before emigrating to the United States. She hasn’t stopped traveling since.
