BORDERS – John Geiger – The Third Man Factor

27th March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

John Geiger is the Chief Executive Officer of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society. Using material from his acclaimed book, The Third Man Factor: Surviving the Impossible, John tells the story behind an extraordinary idea: that people on the edge of death, often adventurers or explorers, experience a benevolent presence who encourages them to make one final effort to survive. In his talk John combines history, scientific analysis and great adventure stories to explain this survival secret.

Tickets are available on the night, at the door and online via Eventbrite from one month before until midday the day before a talk. If booking a Tiso or RSGS member ticket please be sure to bring your card(s) along.  Thank you.
