Lecture, book launch for ‘After the Meteor: Surprising History in Yucatán’

Wed., February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Free

The Mérida English Library’s lecture series continues at 7 p.m. with Robert D. Temple, PhD., who has recently published “After the Meteor: Surprising History in Yucatán.” A book launch follows at 8 p.m.

Learn about things that happened before Columbus; adventurers during discovery and conquest; unforgettable heroes, heroines, and villains. Wars, rebellions, and naval battles, from deadly important to comically inept. The highs and lows — Yucatán’s hard-won independence, its tragedies, poverty, and wealth. Learn of the places we can visit and experience today that are connected directly with history.

“After the Meteor” compiles a series that first appeared in The Yucatán Times and was published in January with design and production services from Hamaca Press, which is affiliated with Yucatán Expat Life.
