'Cotton Candy Road Trip' takes Elmhurst author to vintage amusement parks
By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
“It's a little like ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, except with roller coasters,” explains Pam Turlow of Elmhurst, author of the part memoir, part travelogue and part serendipitous journey into the spiritual realm, "The Cotton Candy Road Trip."
She takes the reader along on her tour of 40 vintage amusement parks. The book traces her travels across the United States with humor, gentleness and a sense of playful wonder.
"The Cotton Candy Road Trip" takes place during a two-year period, coinciding with her father’s declining health, and her own soul searching for meaning beyond monetary confines.
The book is written in diary style, with chapters numbered for each park visit. The appendices include Pam’s Top Five List of favorite parks, a list of favorite foodstuffs found at the parks, and more categories.
Most recently, Turlow spoke at Nest Vintage Modern in La Grange, offering a fun stroll down the path of vintage American amusement history.
