Atlas Obscura Road Trip: Hidden Wonders in Cincinnati at Joseph-Beth Bookstore

Come join us for a conversation about Atlas Obscura's new book with author and co-founder Dylan Thuras!

Join us on Dec. 11 at Cincinnati's own Joseph-Beth Booksellers to celebrate Atlas Obscura's very first book: Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders!

At a Cincinnati commons dedicated to conversation, culture, sharing, and exploration that has hosted more bestselling authors, celebrities, public figures and politicians than any other local organization, we'll spend the evening with Atlas Obscura co-founder Dylan Thuras, together delving into the most astonishing and curious locations featured in the book. Such wonders include: 

  • A fire that’s been burning in the Turkmenistan desert for 40 years.
  • Thousands of synchronized fireflies that inexplicably flash in unison in a cluster of mangrove trees outside Kuala Lumpur.
  • The self-mummifying monks of Japan.
  • The world’s only museum dedicated to displaying art made from human hair.

Afterwards, you'll have the chance to get your books signed and chat with Dylan himself. This event is also the perfect opportunity to meet other local explorers—potential companions for local adventures, or perhaps for one of Atlas Obscura's upcoming international trips? Joseph-Beth and Atlas Obscura share the join mission to enlarge hearts, broaden perspectives, and sharpen thinking—and we'd love you to join us.

This event is free, but please RSVP on the event Facebook page here.
