Can Geo Talks 2018: Adam Shoalts
When Adam Shoalts talks about travelling solo, he doesn’t mean in the “I backpacked across Europe to find myself” sense. In the summer of 2017, the modern-day explorer and author of the bestselling books Alone Against the North: An Expedition into the Unknown (about a previous expedition into the Hudson Bay lowlands) and A History of Canada in 10 Maps crossed 4,000 kilometres of remote, Arctic mainland Canada with no one to keep him company but the wolves and bears bold enough to investigate him and his canoe.
Join The Royal Canadian Geographical Society in Vancouver for an engaging free public talk by Shoalts. He'll discuss his epic expedition and what he plans to do next in his role as one of the Society's newest Explorers-in-Residence.
When: Wednesday, May 16, 7 p.m.
Where: UBC Robson Square Theatre
800 Robson St.
