Two young travel writers will be discussing their unusual books of improbable places and undiscovered islands.
Travis Elborough & Malachy Tallack – Improbable Places and Undiscovered Islands

In his Atlas of Improbable Places, Travis Elborough goes in search of the obscure and bizarre, the beautiful and estranged. Taking in the defiant relics of ancient cities such as Ani, the church tower of San Juan Parangaricuto, and the labyrinths of Berlin and Beijing. With beautiful maps and stunning photography illustrating each destination, this is a fascinating voyage to the world’s most incredible destinations. Malachy Tallack returns to Aye Write! with The Un-Discovered Islands, an exploration of two dozen islands once believed to be real but no longer on the map. From the well-known story of Atlantis to more obscure tales from around the globe; from ancient history right up to the present day. This is an atlas of legend and wonder, of places discovered and then un-discovered.
