Wade Davis

A famed explorer; a new take on exploration.

Wade Davis is “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all life’s diversity.”

Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society, Davis earned his doctorate at Harvard; he’s won the Lowell Thomas Medal for non-fiction and had his 13 books translated into 14 languages. Davis has also been the subject of more than 800 media reports; he’s hosted the 8-hour documentary series, Light at the Edge of the World, for the National Geographic Channel; and he’s even inspired three episodes of The X-Files. This year, he received The Explorers’ Medal, the highest award of The Explorers Club in New York.

Wade Davis will join us to discuss his new book, Into The Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest. It’s drawn rave reviews in Britain and the U.S. and redefines the meaning of Everest and exploration.

So join us to hear one of the most complex, articulate and riveting figures on the public stage.
