Coffee at 10:30am

Ludlow Mascall Centre

Speaker: Fran Sandham

Fran Sandham is a critically acclaimed author and public speaker who took on the challenge of a lifetime, by walking completely solo across Africa from coast to coast. His 3,000-mile walk from the Atlantic on Namibia's Skeleton Coast to the Indian Ocean near Zanzibar was the first time anyone had crossed Africa solo, entirely on foot, by this route. He had no back-up plan and endured much discomfort and danger en route.

Fran is a former editor of Rough Guides and has also written freelance formany newspapers and magazines including the Daily Telegraph, the Observer and the Financial Times. His book Traversa: A solo walk across Africa! received terrific reviews on both sides of the Atlantic and was serialised in the Sunday Times.

Non-members are always welcome to come to a U3A meeting as a visitor to find out more about U3A in Ludlow.
