Doctor/singer/teacher/author Meredith Kennedy chronicles her adventures on five continents, as she leads student groups through Africa and New Zealand, performs as a singer, and explores culture, environment, music, and the recipe for the elusive Broken Glass Cake. Broken Glass Cake: Adventures off the Beaten Path explores the moment and transcends the ordinary by rescuing live seafood, carrying on 3 a.m. conversations with a can of bug spray, delivering a cow by flashlight, searching for giant nocturnal crustaceans, dancing in a spirit possession ceremony, hoping for first contact with extraterrestrials, and making music videos on the island of Zanzibar. Dr. Kennedy's chronicles of life off the beaten path take her from Africa to the South Pacific, to Europe and Central America, all sprinkled with wry humor and delight in the unexpected, with the occasional foray into time warps and imaginary historical characters. Her adventures with her students as she directs college semester abroad programs in remote locations continue to reveal how life happens while you're making plans.Meredith Kennedy is a veterinarian, with a master's degree in vocal performance, and was an Academic Director for World Learning Inc. for ten years in Africa and New Zealand.
