(12:15 EDT) -- Avalon Waterways has introduced a new set of celebrity-hosted river cruises for 2021 and 2022 featuring personalities and best-selling authors who fit the criteria of book club favorites.

Avalon's new "Storyteller Series" river cruises will feature six notable personalities onboard, including authors Diana Gabaldon (Outlander); Candace Bushnell (Sex in the City); Cheryl Strayed (Wild); Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl); Christopher Moore (You Suck); and singer-songwriter Edwin McCain.

“Our new, exclusive Storyteller Series invites travelers to enhance the storytelling tapestry of their lives by embarking on incredible, ‘once upon a river’ vacations,” Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways, said in a statement. “Through this special series of sailings, Avalon guests get to spend a week in Europe with their favorite storytellers. They’re invited to meet legends in legendary landscapes.”

Avalon's new Storyteller river cruise departures will sail the Rhine, Danube and Seine rivers, and will feature book signing sessions, concerts and Q&A sessions, along with opportunities to interact with each celebrity host while onboard and ashore.

Avalon has previously hosted author Gabaldon, who christened Avalon Tapestry II in 2015, and Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden, who served as the godmother of Avalon Tranquility II that same year.
