A READING AND BOOK SIGNING WITH KIM MACQUARRIE, AUTHOR OF LIFE AND DEATH IN THE ANDES: ON THE TRAIL OF BANDITS, HEROES AND REVOLUTIONARIES.

Kim MacQuarrie is a writer, a four-time Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker and an anthropologist. He is the author of four books on Peru and lived in that country for five years, during which time he lived with a recently-contacted tribe of indigenous Amazonians, called the Yora. This experience led him to investigate and write his book The Last Days of the Incas.

MacQuarrie's latest book, Life and Death in the Andes: On the Trail of Bandits, Heroes, and Revolutionaries is about a 4,500-mile journey from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego where he investigated the lives and stories of Pablo Escobar, Che Guevara, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Charles Darwin, Thor (Kon Tiki) Heyerdahl and a preserved Inca "Ice Maiden" sacrificed 500 years ago on top of a 20,000 foot volcano.
