Miles Harvey Visits This Wednesday

Miles Harvey is "an archaeologist of forgotten stories," best known for his 2001 nonfic epic, The Island of Lost Maps, which traces the history of cartography alongside the life of "the Al Capone of map stealing."

His latest book, Painter In A Savage Land, tells the story of the first European artist in the New World, the largely forgotten Jaques le Moyne de Morgues, and accoriding to Publishers Weekly "hits the sweet spot for both adventure buffs and history fans." He's also a writer for Outside magazine.

Miles will read from Painter during his visit to Roosevelt University this Wednesday at 5pm in the Auditorium Building, room 244. Join us!
