We're thrilled to announce that Jill Heinerth, one of the most celebrated divers in the world, is launching her new book at the NYC Sea Gypsies' August meeting! Published by Harper Collins, "Into the Planet" details a firsthand account of exploring the earth’s final frontier: the hidden depths of our oceans & the sunken caves inside our planet. Join us to hear Jill speak about her explorations, her book, & her life as she kicks off her North American book tour with the NYC Sea Gypsies! Come early to enjoy a happy hour with Jill as well beginning at 5:30PM.
Famed independent book store, Strand, will also be on site selling the book which Jill will be signing both during the happy hour & at the meeting.
More people have walked on the moon than have been to some of the places Jill Heinerth has explored right here on earth. Jill is a veteran of over 30 years of filming, photography, & exploration on projects in submerged caves around the world with National Geographic, NOAA, various educational institutions, & television networks worldwide. She is the inaugural Explorer in Residence for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, recipient of Canada’s prestigious Polar Medal, & the diving world’s highest award from the Academy of Underwater Arts and Sciences, the NOGI.
We'll begin the happy hour downstairs at 5:30 PM. (You'll find us sitting towards the front of the bar on the right.) Once the upstairs is open, we'll move there. Happy hour specials are available downstairs only: $6 select beers on draft, well drinks, merlot, chardonnay, & Moscow Mules
At 7 PM the regular club meeting will begin upstairs, followed by a presentation by Jill Heinerth.
Special thanks to our club president, Joe Sferrazza, & board member, Renata Rojas, for arranging this exclusive event for the NYC Sea Gypsies.
Both club members & guests welcome. Hope to see you all there!
