Wade Davis -- "Magdalena"

Wade Davis will speak about his new book, Magdalena: River of Dreams: A Story of Colombia, in this virtual event on Wednesday, December 9th at 5:00pm MT on Zoom. He will be in conversation with Pam Houston. Tickets for this event are $5 (plus a small convenience fee) and are available on Eventbrite HERE or by clicking the button below.

About the Book:
Travelers often become enchanted with the first country that captures their hearts and gives them license to be free. For Wade Davis, it was Colombia. Now in a masterly new book, Davis tells of his travels on the mighty Magdalena, the river that made possible the nation. Along the way, he finds a people who have overcome years of conflict precisely because of their character, informed by an enduring spirit of place, and a deep love of a land that is home to the greatest ecological and geographical diversity on the planet.

At once an absorbing adventure and an inspiring tale of hope and redemption, Magdalena gives us a rare, kaleidoscopic picture of a nation on the verge of a new period of peace. Braiding together memoir, history, and journalism, Wade Davis tells the story of the country's most magnificent river, and in doing so, tells the epic story of Colombia.
