Historian Steve Kemper to come to Carmichael's!

 On Sunday, August 19th at 4 PM, Carmichael's welcomes historian and former Louisvillian Steve Kemper for a signing of his new book A Labyrinth of Kingdoms : 10,000 Miles in Islamic Africa.

In 1849 Heinrich Barth joined a small British expedition into unexplored regions of Islamic North and Central Africa. One by one his companions died, but he carried on alone, eventually reaching the fabled city of gold, Timbuktu. His five-and-a-half-year, 10,000-mile adventure ranks among the greatest journeys in the annals of exploration, and his discoveries are considered indispensable by modern scholars of Africa.
