RCGS Event: What lurks beyond the flicker of the firelight?

October 21 @ 7:00 pm

Since the dawn of time, humans have told tales of the strange and scary things that lurk in the darkness, beyond the flicker of the firelight. In his new book, The Whisper on the Night Wind, Royal Canadian Geographical Society Westaway Explorer-in-Residence Adam Shoalts travels to the foothills of Labrador’s remote Mealy Mountains to investigate a terrifying tale from the early 1900s when a mysterious beast haunted the community. Shoalts gives the inside story on where he went — and what he discovered — in a special evening presentation.

Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear Adam Shoalts recount stories from his forthcoming book!
