Wilton Library To Host Extreme Travel Presentation – Patch


WILTON, CT — The Wilton Library is serving up a Zoom presentation by nationally-known adventure travel journalist Peter Mandel.
The author of ten books, Mandel hunts for 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.
During this session, the author 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 will also talk about how adventure travel turns to prose in today’s media.
