The Goodnow Library, 21 Concord Road, Sudbury, will host Going to Extremes: A Travel Journalist’s Tour of the Globe’s Most Adventurous Outposts from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 3.

Peter Mandel hunts his stories and photos in the world’s far corners, including Antarctica, India, Egypt, Patagonia, the fjords of Norway, the mountain pathways of Japan and the deserts of Africa.

The author of 10 books, Mandel will show slides of his travel experiences: surviving a coup in Ecuador, visiting a “city” of penguins at the South Pole, fishing for piranha on Brazil’s Rio Negro, floating in the Goodyear Blimp, sailing on an Arctic icebreaker, camping in the African bush and kayaking to the Statue of Liberty.

He’ll tell how travel turns to prose on today’s magazine and newspaper pages.
