National Geographic Live’s Pink Boots and a Machete
January 24 @ 7:00 pm
National Geographic Live returns to Chicago on the Auditorium’s historic stage with a year-long series dedicated to inspirational women.
This evening features Mireya Mayor, a former NFL cheerleader and daughter of Cuban immigrants who followed her unlikely dreams to become a respected primatologist. This audacious explorer is the co-discoverer of the world’s smallest primate in Madagascar and an Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. Mayor tells her tales of traveling to some of the wildest and most remote places on earth, armed with little more than a backpack, notebook, and hiking boots.
