Old Towne House, 11 Town House Dr., Pomfret Center, CT 06259
Tuesday, Feb. 26, 7:00 pm
GOING TO EXTREMES: A TRAVEL JOURNALIST’S TOUR OF THE GLOBE’S MOST ADVENTUROUS OUTPOSTS
An award-winning adventure travel journalist for The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, National Geographic Kids, and The Boston Globe, Peter Mandel hunts his stories and photos in the world’s far corners, including Antarctica, India, Egypt, Patagonia, the fjords of Norway, the mountain pathways of Japan, and the deserts of Africa. The author of ten books, Mandel will show slides of his most extreme travel experiences:  surviving a coup in Ecuador, visiting a ‘city’ of penguins at the South Pole, fishing for piranha on Brazil’s Rio Negro, floating in the Goodyear Blimp, sailing on an Arctic icebreaker, camping in the African bush, and kayaking to the Statue of Liberty. He’ll deliver the scoop on how travel turns to prose on today’s magazine and newspaper pages.
