Andrew Evans and The Black Penguin

Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019, 7 p.m.

On assignment for National Geographic, Andrew Evans traveled 12,000 miles by bus from Washington, D.C. to South America’s southernmost tip before crossing by ship to Antarctica. Per his assignment, all of this was documented in real time on Twitter, but also in video, blog form, and a printed feature - The Black Penguin.

Evans became a viral hit as National Geographic's "Digital Nomad" writer - the author charts a parallel journey in his book, that of a Mormon man coming to terms with his religion and his identity as a gay man. Come to hear Andrew discuss his adventure.

The talk is part of the ongoing “Trips of a Lifetime” series.
