Join the East of England committee to hear all about Vitali's latest book, Atlas of Geographical Curiosities , a compendium of interesting, unexpected, and downright bizarre geographical anomalies that are guaranteed to delight and inspire.

Two identical couples slip through the cracks from other universes and find themselves trapped in a world which is almost, but not quite, like their own. The world is full of very little-known geographical anomalies that are, or have often been, a source of diplomatic and/or military struggles. Many still exist under the radar, and are, or could become, the source of a major international crisis. Relationships are strained, new attachments are formed and the beautiful little differences that make each of us unique are examined closely as they ponder how well we know our loved ones.If you are a geography fan, a history fan or someone who likes weird, interesting facts, try this book.
