Longing for that once-a-lifetime journey to Antarctica? Or maybe you just want to know more about this less-travelled continent? Here’s the chance to hear all about Antarctica, from Cambridge alumni John Harrison, who has visited Antarctica over 50 times. In his talk, he will share with us his experiences there, as well as his career as a travel fiction writer.

About the speaker

John Harrison is an award-winning travel, history and fiction writer and an experienced lecturer. He has hitched around every country in South and Central America, and canoed in Africa, Europe and North America. His first book, ‘Where the Earth Ends – A Journey Beyond Patagonia’, which charts his route through Argentina, Chile and his unexpected journey to Antarctica, became a Sunday Times Book of the Week. John’s more recent work, ‘Forgotten Footprints’, explores the history of the Antarctic Peninsula.
