The newspapers are hailing this as a magical evening tour with premier map maker, Michael Gellatly. Participants will be given a map made by Michael specifically for the evening. With his recent maps for the Game of Thrones behind him, Michael will share insight into how map-makers view lines, boundaries, and incidental fantasies. I am sure it will be a magical evening. Michael was recently interviewed by Diane C. Lade for the The Sun Sentinal : read Sun Sentinal newspaper article here.
