John Law: Scaling Big Bridges
John Law is obsessed with bridges. He's studied them, written about them, and worked on them. And he's climbed them. A lot of them. Without permission.

Law is an adventurer. An urban explorer before anyone had heard of the term. He started climbing bridges with the Suicide Club in San Francisco in the mid 1970s and continued with the Cacophony Society in the 1980s and 1990s. Along the way, he scaled massive spanners around the world, including every major bridge in New York. And he took his camera.

Law's lecture tonight features spectacularly lucky photography to accompany his amusing, improbable, and occasionally harrowing tales. He'll explain what it took to finally get up the Verrazano-Narrows, why he ran the Brooklyn Bridge cables in a Santa suit, and why he no longer climbs the Golden Gate. He'll talk about his book of short stories, The Space Between (Furnace Press, 2009), and share exploits recorded in his newest book, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society (Last Gasp, 2013).

Whether you're an armchair adventurer or a seasoned explorer, Law's inspiring talk will change the way you see the city.
