Kauffman Center & Rainy Day Books present Kenny Broad, Diver and Environmental Anthropologist

EVENT:  Kenny Broad, Diver and Environmental Anthropologist, will give a Multimedia Presentation of his life and work.  Rainy Day Books will have Kenny's Books available for purchase at this Author Event.

ABOUT THE EVENT: In Kenny Broad’s line of work, exploring submerged caves and blue holes, one mistake can equal death. He and his team must take every precaution to avoid such dangers as stirring up sediments that can wipe out visibility, succumbing to nausea as they pass through a toxic layer of hydrogen sulfide, or getting lost in maze-like passageways with a limited supply of diving gasses. The need to study blue holes is urgent, as they are among the least studied and most threatened habitats on Earth. Broad’s work combines the study of risk perception, exploration, and environmental anthropology.
