Marty Essen, Adventurist, Lecturer, & Award-Winning Author

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – September 10, 2015 – Fayetteville Technical Community College’s (FTCC) Student Government Association (SGA) is pleased to sponsor Marty Essen, adventurist, lecturer, and award-winning author on Thursday, September 24, 2015, in the Cumberland Hall Auditorium on the FTCC Fayetteville campus beginning at 7:00 p.m.  The event is free and open to the public.

Essen, who authored Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents, spent three and a half years visiting some of the wildest places on the planet. His high-energy show, “Around the World in 90 Minutes,” is one part lecture, one part theater, one part slide show, and one part comedy, which covers material on endangered species, new scientific discoveries, and the need for environmental protection. The event features interesting facts, humorous stories, and the best of the thousands of photos Essen took while traveling seven continents for his book.

Essen divides his show into eight segments, covering his adventures and wildlife encounters on each of the seven continents, plus Central America. After the show, he will open up the floor for questions and engage the audience in a lively discussion.
