A Broad Abroad is a book about leaving behind everyone (and everything) you know and learning how to live in someone else's country. During her junior year abroad (JYA) in Canterbury, Kent in the mid 1980s, Diane Giombetti Clue survived British cooking and social customs, grew a lot more curious, and learned to be far less critical. In the process, she fell in love with an entire nation. Funny, honest, and practical, A Broad Abroad is part memoir and part how-to guide. The book is packed with helpful advice and tips for students who want to make the most of their JYA. A Broad Abroad is an invaluable tool for students and a wonderfully nostalgic story for people who've already taken the JYA journey (with or without big hair and shoulder pads).
