SHACKLETON NEWS ARCHIVE
EXPERT BIOGRAPHER OF CREAN AND WORDIE PRODUCES NEW BESTSELLER FROM COLLINS PRESS FOR THE ENDURANCE CENTENARY
Michael has honoured Irish Antarctic pioneers with Great Endeavour, a survey of 200 years of activity at the Poles. He has also reached out to Captain Scott's last expedition with I Am Just Going Outside, a biography of the brave and selfless Captain Oates. These books and others are published by The Collins Press.
Now Michael Smith has turned his considerable skills to the great man himself, updating the story by offering his own fresh overview, drawing on recent scholarship and undertaking meaningful researches of his own, significantly to further our knowledge of 'The Boss'.
Following a series of lectures in Ireland at Waterford, at Athy Heritage Centre and in Dun Laoghaire, the port of Dublin, Michael Smith will be lecturing in the UK: perhaps most notably, he will talk at Sydenham Community Library, in the very South London borough where Ernest Shackleton spent his early teens, at 7.00 on Tuesday 18 November (0208 778 1753). On Sunday 23 November he will lecture at the Stables Theatre, Hastings at 3.00 p.m. Early in the new year he will be at Robertsbridge and East Grinstead in Sussex before continuing his appearances in Dublin and Belfast, Wexford and County Clare.
