An Evening in Conversation with Spud Hilton - SF Travel Lectures Series Event

  • Feb 24, 2011 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Spud Hilton is Travel Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and writer for the section's blog, Bad Latitude. He is a 20-year journalist and a late-blooming traveler who, in eight years with the Travel Section has written about, reported on and been hopelessly lost on five continents.

His attempts to defy the expectations of places — from Havana's back alleys to Genoa's cathedrals to the floor of a hippie bus in Modesto — have earned three SATW Lowell Thomas Awards. His stories have appeared in more than 60 newspapers in North America, several of which are still publishing.

Spud lives with his wife, Ann, in San Francisco and plays cornet in an early New Orleans-style jazz band.

He can be found online at his blog Bad Latitude and tweeting at
