In my latest Booklust, Wanderlust column for The Displaced Nation, we venture off in search of the lost city of Atlantis, with Mark Adams' Meet Me in Atlantis.

Are we faster than cancer?
My client ESGO (European Society of Gynaecological Oncologists) thinks we can be--and they want to demonstrate that by highlighting the progress of one of their members in the New York City Marathon later this year.
I'm very happy to have been involved in the setup of ESGO's first crowdfunding campaign, on Fundrazr. They asked me to help them research the crowdfunding possibilities available for European nonprofits and also to help create the text for their campaign, which went live this week.
Donations will support ESGO in its mission to train oncologists and educate professionals and the public about women's cancers. If you have a spare euro or two, this is a good cause.
Women’s genital cancer affects millions of women worldwide every year but many women don’t know that they are sick until their illness has become serious. Additionally, in parts of the world, prevention and screening is lacking, or doctors lack the training to promptly and correctly care for patients with genital cancer.--ESGO's Fundrazr campaign
