Journalist Doug Lansky will visit campus April 8.

Lansky, who is known for his humorous story telling, has traveled the world and will share his experiences in a presentation he calls "Get Lost, World Travel Guide." The author will also give away a Eurail pass to a lucky audience member.

The journalist interned for Late Night with David Letterman, Spy magazine and The New Yorker while in college and spent two years traveling the world after graduation until an automobile accident forced him to return home. He hasn’t stopped traveling and writing since his recuperation.

Picking bananas in Israel and selling carpets in Morocco are two of the many temporary jobs Lanksy took on after graduation and in his early days as a world traveler.

He became America’s youngest syndicated columnist with a weekly “The Vagabond Tales” before he was 30 years old and has published eight books. His latest book, “Sign Spotting 2,” can be purchased at the event.

Sylvia Shortt, assistant director of International Services and Programs, said the evening promises to be entertaining and enlightening. For more information, call 678-839-4780.
