INTO THE HEART OF NOWHERE with Benedict Allen
Thursday 7 June 2018
18:30 - 20:30
The London Library
With his usual enthusiasm and humour, Benedict shares the true story of his recent expedition to the remotest forests of Papua New Guinea, a daring journey to locate people who befriended him 35 years ago, and which created headlines around the world when it was thought he was lost, “kidnapped by head-hunters,” or had simply gone mad.
Benedict Allen is one of the world’s leading explorers, famous for his technique of not taking a GPS, phone or normal “backup” but instead relying on skills he has learnt from indigenous people. He has published ten books – two of them best sellers – and made seven TV series for the BBC.
