Travel Journalist and Photographer Peter Mandel Presents "Going to Extremes"


An award-winning adventure travel journalist for The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, National Geographic, and The Wall Street JournalPeter 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, he'll 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.  

Mandel's books have been published by many different companies. One of his articles for the Boston Globe won the 2005 Lowell Thomas gold medal from the Society of American Travel Writers for adventure travel article of the year. Other articles for the Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun won the award in 2003, 2006, and 2007.
