TCC Book Club Breakout Room!

After the Virtual Exploration presentation, a breakout room for the TCC Book Club will discuss Osa Johnson’s I Married Adventure, a well-written memoir of her life with her husband Martin. They evolved from small-town Kansas kids to pioneering world travelers, photographing and filming indigenous cultures and wildlife from Melanesia to East Africa for two decades starting in 1917. They had a remarkably close relationship, developed a sizable media company, and saw truly isolated societies and landscapes.
