Robert Kurson July 1

Please join us Wednesday, July 1 at 7 p.m. to hear Chicago author Robert Kurson talk about his writing and his new book, Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship.

Kurson is also the author of Shadow Divers: the True Adventure of Two American Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of World War II and Crashing Through: the Extraordinary True Story of the Man who Dared to See

He began his writing career at the Chicago Sun-Times and worked for Chicago magazine and Esquire, where he won a National Magazine Award. Kurson's stories have appeared in Rolling Stone and The New York Times Magazine. A graduate of Harvard Law School, he also worked as an attorney.

The New York Times wrote of Shadow Divers, "You know a book has you when you avoid looking at its photo display or final pages for fear of spoiling its surprises. Robert Kurson has written a genre-mixing sprint of a narrative, an adventure story that is also a genuine historical mystery."
