Going to Extremes: Adventure Travel Talk (via Zoom)

August 10, 2023 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM


Join Peter Mandel, author of ten books and an award-winning adventure travel journalist, and the Ridgefield Library for a fascinating online discussion of Peter’s most extreme travel experiences.

Peter will show slides from his adventures, including 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 will then deliver the scoop on how travel turns to prose in today’s magazine and newspaper pages.

Please register for the Zoom link.
