An Evening with Atlas Obscura’s Dylan Thuras

October 16, 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

image of book cover and of authorDylan Thuras adventures back to Milwaukee for an event celebrating the brand new edition of his explorer’s guide that the New York Times calls “a wanderlust-whetting cabinet of curiosities on paper.”

And what better sponsor for this event than the American Geographical Society Library,  Milwaukee’s own geographer’s treasure trove? The evening will feature Thuras’ slide show presentation, a trivia contest, and a special mini-exhibit of maps connected to the book.

This event is co-sponsored by Boswell Book Company, the American Geographical Society Library, and Workman Publishing.
