I'll Never Leave this Place Alive: A Pioneering Female Geologist Explores South America and the Shifting Landscape of Women in the Sciences
Travel memoirs to exotic regions infrequently feature women as protagonists, rarely combine laugh-out-loud misadventures with insights about the pioneering efforts of women to enter the almost exclusively male branches of field sciences.
Margaret Winslow is a field geologist with over thirty years of wilderness experience and the award-winning author of Over My Head: Journeys in Leaky Boats from the Strait of Magellan to Cape Horn and Beyond (2012) and The Cusp of Dreadfulness (2016). Margaret's book is like Cheryl Strayed's Wild and Darwin's Voyage of the Beagle, but set in a dictatorship located at the tip of South America during the turbulent 1970's through 1990's.
This symposium is made possible through a generous donation from the estate of Dorothy S. Davis.
This program will be held at: The Palisades Community Center, 675 Oak Tree Road, Palisades, NY. FREE ADMISSION. Registration is requested.
