Moon Patagonia: October on the Road

Later this month, I will take the new third edition of Moon Handbooks Patagonia on the road, with a series of digital slides presentations on southernmost South America. In addition to covering the capital cities of Buenos Aires and Santiago, the gateway cities to Patagonia, I will offer a visual tour of the Chilean and Argentine lakes districts, Argentina's wildlife-rich coastline and Chile's forested fjords, the magnificent Andean peaks of the Fitz Roy range (pictured below) and Torres del Paine, and the uttermost part of the Earth in Tierra del Fuego. I will also include the Falkland Islands, with their abundant sub-Antarctic wildlife.
For those planning trips to the south, there be will be ample time for questions and answers. Books, including my other titles on Argentina, Chile and Buenos Aires, will be on sale at all the events.

Except for the World Affairs Council of the East Bay, all events below are free; the WAC charges $15 for council members and $17 for non-members; students get in free. This will be a wine program as well, starting at 6:30 p.m., and there may be a tango demonstration (to be confirmed).

Advance reservations are advisable for events at REI stores, which often fill up quickly. This can be done online.
