Eco Club - Nick Norman Talk



Eco Club - Nick Norman Talk

04 November 2013

Nick Norman, co-author of the book: ‘Geology off the Beaten Track – Exploring South Africa’s Hidden Treasures’, drew a large audience when he gave his talk (on invitation of Montagu's ECO Club) on the 4th November. The event, held at the Museum's Art Gallery in the KWV building, was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended as Mr Norman's talk covered an unusual topic and was most informative.
South Africans - particularly here in Montagu - have such a rich geological heritage and everyone found it fascinating to understand and learn more about the unusual rock formations surrounding us.
Some describe Mr Norman's books as handy volumes - "essentail companions for car journeys along all the major routes across South Africa, as they explain and offer answers to many of our geologically interesting landmarks, their roots and often tumultuous history".

Just how well Mr Norman's talk was received, was evident when, at the end of the proceedings, a steady line formed to purchase a signed copy of Mr Norman's newest Book!
