Daniel Barbarisi: Chasing the Thrill, October 17, 2021

Needham resident and author Daniel Barbarisi will discuss his latest book, Chasing the Thrill, the story of Forrest Fenn's treasure hunt -- a famed quest for a million-dollar treasure chest set in motion in 2010 that captivated tens of thousands and led to five deaths -- and the years Barbarisi spent inside it, living amongst the searchers in order to tell the tale. The book explores the nature of obsession, the history of treasure hunting, and the human cost of chasing a great dream. The program is free and open to the public, but you must first register . Registrants will receive a link to the Zoom session two days before the event.
