Thurber House Presents Carl Hoffman: Evenings with Authors

March 27, 2018 7:30 pm @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by Thurber House, Evenings with Authors is a series of readings and chats featuring nationally known bestselling authors. Each reading and Q&A lasts about an hour, followed by a book signing and a punch and cookies reception.

About the book and author: Two adventurers sought a treasure possessed by the legendary “Wild Men of Borneo.” One found riches. The other vanished into an endless jungle. New York Times bestselling author Carl Hoffman discovers that nothing is as it seems in the world’s last Eden. Bruno Manser lived with the peace-loving Penan tribe when commercial logging began devouring the jungle. He led the fight against these outside forces, but vanished in 2000. Had he become a hermit, or a martyr, or gone mad? Michael Palmieri staged expeditions to acquire artifacts from the Dayaks, the famed headhunters of Borneo. The successful tribal art collector supplied sacred works to museums and collectors, but suspicion shadowed this self-styled buccaneer. Was he preserving or exploiting native culture? Hoffman is the author of the critically acclaimed book, Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller’s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art.
