The SciFri Book Club Talks ‘The Lost City of Z’
Join novelist Jeff VanderMeer and archaeologist Sarah Parcak for the SciFri Book Club’s discussion of David Grann’s tale of Amazonian exploration, The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon. What really happened to Victorian-era explorer Percy Fawcett after he disappeared into the Amazon’s “Green Hell”? Is Fawcett’s “lost city of Z” a figment of his imagination or an archaeological reality? It’s all up for debate when the SciFri Book Club talks The Lost City of Z.
