Going to Extremes: A Travel Journalist's Tour of the Globe's Most Adventurous Outposts

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

This program has been moved to Zoom. Please register online; we will send out the link shortly before the presentation.

The Hingham Library is excited to welcome back journalist Peter Mandel for a presentation of his popular talk "Going to Extremes".

A nationally-known adventure travel journalist for The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, National Geographic, and The Los Angeles Times, Mandel hunts his stories and photos in the world's far corners, including Antarctica, India, Egypt, Patagonia, the fjords of Norway, the mountains of Japan, and the deserts of Africa.

This event will be held on Zoom. To join us, please register online.

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 — and talk about how adventure travel turns to prose in today's media.  He'll also offer a few tips on how to write about YOUR travels for fun and sometimes even profit.
