A Conversation with Dylan Thuras and Mary Roach

Join us in Menlo Park to celebrate the release of Atlas Obscura: An Explorer's Guide to the World's Hidden Wonders!

Join us in Menlo Park on October 5th as we celebrate the release of the very first Atlas Obscura book: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders!

Presented by Peninsula Arts & Letters and Kepler's Books, we welcome you for a conversation and Q&A with Atlas Obscura founder Dylan Thuras (and the face of the popular 100 Wonders video series) and bestselling author Mary Roach, author of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadaverswinner of several awards. We'll gather together at the iconic bookstore, founded in 1955 by peace activist Roy Kepler, for an evening dedicated to curiosity and discovery.

Join us for an evening of exploration into the strangest and most curious places in the world.  Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, we'll spend the night discussing the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden, and the mysterious - from the dazzling glowworm caves of New Zealand to the M.C. Escher-like stepwells in India, the Baby Jumping Festival in Spain, and much more.

Who wants to be a tourist, when you can be an explorer?  That's what we thought. We'll see you soon.
