Event Type: Adults
Date: 7/8/2019
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:15 PM
Description:
 Driving across Pennsylvania, you'll notice a highly varied landscape, but how much do you really know about it? Join geographer Paul Kelley in an engaging exploration of the state with maps, photos, and personal stories. We'll cover Pennsylvania's geographical regions, how they came to be, and see how much the distant past has shaped today's human landscapes. Whether it's rolling farmland, forested mountains, a tiny village, sprawling metropolis, or a broad river winding through them all, you can bet there's a story there waiting to be told. So come hear a few of them for yourselves.

Paul Kelley grew up in suburban Philadelphia. He earned a BA from Macalester College in St. Paul, majoring in Environmental Studies and Geography. He later earned an MA and PhD in Geography from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. After returning to the East Coast in 2007, Paul began exploring his home state and creating lifelong courses on Pennsylvania geography, travel literature, native plant gardening, and beginner's astrology.
