Bound, who has found many famous shipwrecks around the world and served as director of exploration on the elite expedition team who found the Endurance shipwreck last year in the Weddell Sea, will speak this April at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland—his first appearance in the region since the discovery and release of his new book.

T?his Washington College Center for Environment & Society event is free and open to the public.

Additionally, copies will be available for purchase during the book signing. Pre-registration for this event is required as seating is limited, and the theater is expected to fill to capacity.
