Mann's international bestseller "1491" ripped down the notion that Columbus tamed a continent of scattered, uncivilized natives. His subsequent book, "1493," completes this historical re-envisioning, inviting readers to view the arrival of Europeans in the Americas through a powerful lens—as an interaction that sparked the first truly global exchange system. With it came the world today, for better and for worse—economically, governmentally, and perhaps most importantly, ecologically.
The talk is free and open to the public. Early arrival is advised as seating space is limited. After the lecture, attendees are invited to stay for refreshments and to chat with Mann.
