Oliver Balch spent a year travelling across South America, following in the footsteps of Simon Bolivar. 

His book takes us on a grand tour of ten countries, visiting prisons, dance halls, family homes and tribal villages. We meet domestic violence victims in Chile, evangelical movements in Peru, grassroots campaigners in Argentina and many others. 

An independent journalist based in Buenos Aires, Balch clearly loves South America and its people. He is a great guide to an unfamiliar continent. 

Join us to discuss this vivid and gritty travelogue. If you don't have time to read the book, a summary will be available.

The event is free to attend - no booking required.

Email Sue Kay ( for enquiries.

An initiative of Devon Development Education, Global Book Club Plymouth is supported by Plymouth University.
