Titled “Get Lost,” Lansky's presentation is open to APSU students only. A lunch will be provided to the first 100 students in attendance.

“Get Lost” is a fast-paced, visual performance on travel, which resembles stand-up comedy with a great message. Informative, inspirational and funny keynote speaker, Lansky plays packed venues at colleges and universities across the U.S.

A former journalism teacher at Colorado College, Lansky has published several books, including “Last Trout in Venice,” “Up the Amazon without a Paddle” and “Rough Guide to Traveling Around the World.” Lansky's most recent book, “First Time: Around the World,” is a Rough Guides best-seller.
Lansky is working on two additional books for Rough Guides while he tours the lecture circuit and contributes to Esquire, National Geographic Adventure and other publications.

Lansky also is no stranger to television and radio, having hosted an hourlong travel documentary for the Discovery Channel/Travel Channel and served as the regular world-travel expert on National Public Radio's flagship travel program, “Savvy Traveler.”
