Tips About Icebergs: An Artic Adventure

Renowned explorer and travel writer Sara Wheeler talks about her most recent Artic trip for 'The Magnetic North'.

Smashing through the Arctic Ocean with the crew of a Russian icebreaker, herding reindeer with Saami and shadowing the Trans-Alaskan pipeline with truckers, the writer Sara Wheeler made a sequence of east-west circumpolar journeys in the course of the research for her critically acclaimed book The Magnetic North.

In this powerful and funny lecture Wheeler will uncover the beautiful, brutal reality of the Arctic and ponder on its past as well as its future.

According to the Scotsman, ‘Wheeler writes about travel so well because she delights in travelling. Her adventurous spirit, tireless intelligence, joy and wit shine through even the saddest pages of The Magnetic North... She has a rare and precious talent.’

This lecture is being held as part of International Women’s Day Celebrations.

A book signing and a drink reception will follow the lecture.
