Carl Hoffman, contributing editor at National Geographic Traveler, talked about his book, Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller’s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art. He talked about his investigation into the 1961 disappearance of Michael Rockefeller in New Guinea, which was rumored to be due to cannibalism by the Asmat tribe, and about learning about that culture transformed by years of colonial rule but still shaped by ancient customs and lore.

He spoke in Trinity United Methodist Church on Telfair Square as part of the 2015 Savannah Book Festival, held downtown in Savannah, Georgia. close
