A Whirlwind World Tour at Boulder Book Store

Atlas Obscura's Ella Morton will tell stories of wonder from around the globe.

Come to Boulder Book Store to hear highlights from our book, Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders and celebrate the launch of the Atlas Obscura Explorer's Journal!

The book has over 700 of the most unusual, fascinating, and mysterious destinations across all eight continents. Atlas Obscura Senior Editor Ella Morton will be delving into such wonders, including:

  • A giant fiery hole that’s been burning in the Turkmenistan desert for 40 years.
  • The astonishing self-mummifying monks of Japan.
  • A volcanic shard home to a tiny population of palm-sized insects long thought to be extinct.

For your own adventuring, the Explorer's Journal includes a brief guide, with maps, to finding the hidden magic in a dozen of the world's most interesting cities, from New York to Shanghai to Budapest to Tokyo to Cairo.

The book and journal will be available for purchase, and you'll get a chance to have them signed and chat with Ella. This event is also the perfect opportunity to meet other curious explorers!

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author's featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone (303-447-2074), or at the door.
