388416_10150472845144207_1284944671_nTo kick-off Lopez Library’s “Winter Wanderlust Series” (a few days ahead of the winter solstice!) we welcome world renowned kayaker, kayaking instructor and author Nigel Foster. Nigel presents “Encounters from a Kayak” which will feature a slide presentation and talk themed on his  book “Encounters from a Kayak” which celebrates the magical experiences that surround sea kayaking. The stories in the book are about the animals, people, flotsam and jetsam and special places around the globe that grab his attention. His encounters from around the world are bound together by water and the centuries-old form of sea travel: kayaking.  Nigel Foster has journeyed in kayaks in numerous countries around the world; sought out and navigated tidal rapids in The Faeroe Islands, Maelstrom in Norway,  the Western Isles of Scotland, and Pentland Firth between Scotland and Orkney; circumnavigated Greenland in a kayak and paddled an epic solo crossing of the Hudson Strait to northern Labrador just to name a few. He has authored kayaking guides and instructional books and has been featured in publications such as “Adventure Kayak Magazine”, “Sea Kayaker Magazine” & “Watertribe Magazine”. Join us for an evening of wanderlust and amazing adventure from a kayak. Sponsored by Friends of the Lopez Library.
