Josh Gates Will Relay His Stories of Monsters, Hauntings, and More During This Lecture

Star of Discovery Channel’s Expedition Unknown, Josh Gates, will be Live in An Evening of Ghosts, Monsters and Tales of Adventure at the F.M. Kirby Center on Friday, October 18th at 8:00 p.m.

Josh Gates is an avid explorer whose unique brand of humor and deep-rooted passion for adventure propels him to the farthest corners of the world. Discovery Channel’s hit series Expedition Unknown chronicles Gates as he sets out on a global quest to find the truth behind iconic legends and thrilling archaeological mysteries.

In the four-part global event, Expedition Unknown: Search for the Afterlife, Gates tackles mankind’s ultimate mystery as he investigates ancient rituals, paranormal claims, and cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs on the nature of death and consciousness. Gates will also be helming a two-part special in Israel and Jordan working alongside archaeologists attempting to decipher the Dead Sea Scrolls and to uncover new fragments in remote desert caves.

An avid scuba diver and photographer, Gates has participated in sub-sea archaeological excavations in the Mediterranean, and his wanderlust has taken him to over 100 countries. In addition, he has scaled “the roof of Africa” on Mt. Kilimanjaro and climbed Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the Americas. A mysterious “Yeti” footprint recovered by Gates in the Himalayas is now on display at the “Expedition Everest” attraction at Walt Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.

Tickets are on sale now and are available at the Sundance Vacations Box Office at the F.M. Kirby Center, online at www.kirbycenter.org and charge by phone at (570) 826-1100.
