When I was a little kid, I used to love collecting National Geographic Magazines and exploring the world through their incredible images. I would treasure each one that my step dad would bring me, but these days kids are spoiled. These days they have the internet and constant visual candy and of course even more interactive entertainment via live shows. National Geographic has started their own brand of live interactive entertainment to bring the world and the worlds experts right to our own cities via National Geographic Live.

Everyone can join in on these amazing explorers as we journey to the water’s edge, then high above the tree tops, and into the wild seas with National Geographic explorers and photographers. Come hear behind the scenes stories of their adventures and connect with explorers through Q&A and book signings!
