Colombia: country of verdant waterways, complex peoples and rich history.
Author and renowned National Geographic explorer Wade Davis has fascinated people around the world by capturing the essence of places; awakening in his readers a longing for worlds thousands of miles away. What happens when the explorer himself falls for one magnificent place in particular?
The answer is Magdalena: a tribute and love letter to Colombia, the first country that gave him license to be free. In its pages, Davis shares intimate and beguiling stories of travelling the mighty Magdalena river. A corridor of commerce and fountain of culture, as well as a wellspring for Colombian music, literature, poetry and prayer, the Magdalena has served in dark times as the graveyard of the nation. And yet, always, it returns as a river of life.
In a gripping evening of conversation, Davis will speak with Ian Gill, award-winning writer and long-time friend about the experiences that captured his heart, while sharing the epic story of a country so often shrouded in mystery.
