Adventure Book Talk in the Catskills, Friday, Sept. 3, 7 p.m.

Morgan Outdoors, 46 Main St., Livingston Manor, in the New York Catskills, about 100 miles northwest of New York, N.Y., will host Jeff Blumenfeld for a special presentation based on his book, "You Want to Go Where?" at 7 p.m. Sept. 3.

The book covers some of the world's most historic expeditions and adventures with an eye toward how people can gain funding for their own travels.

This program has been presented at the Explorers Club, the Adventurers Club, the American Mountaineering Museum, and off the coast of Antarctica in January.

Blumenfeld covers several adventures, from Will Steger's first confirmed dogsled trek to the North Pole to Reid Stowe's recently concluded history's longest sea voyage — 1,152 days.

Seating is limited and reservations are recommended by calling Lisa Lyons at 845 439 5507.

The free public program will be followed by a book-signing.
