Book Launch: Robert Macfarlane presents Underland
In conversation with Philip Gourevitch
Reception to follow
Robert Macfarlane, hailed by acclaimed travel writer Pico Iyer as “the most accomplished (and erudite) writer on place to have come along in years,” presents his latest exploration of the natural world, Underland. Macfarlane turns his eye underground, taking readers on journeys everywhere from an invisible city beneath Paris to the site of Edgar Allen Poe’s fictionalized Maelstrom. Macfarlane dives deep into both the landscape and the human heart in his attempt to understand humanity’s fascination with the “underland.” Joining him in conversation is Philip Gourevitch, author of the award-winning We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families. A reception follows to celebrate Underland’s highly anticipated US launch.
