EvanKalishPostlandia
by Evan Kalish

Description: With more than 31,000 post offices across the United States, the U.S. Postal Service is everywhere. (Johnny Cash would be proud!) Come see the story of America’s postal network presented by a man who’s personally visited and photographed more than 6,000 post offices across the country.  From Ben Franklin and freedom of the press to the ZIP code, Evan will present some of the ways the post office continues to influence modern life. He’ll also explain why the stories you read about the Postal Service are often entirely wrong.

Bio: Evan, New York-born and -raised, has degrees from Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania. He has worked in education and presently develops unparalleled resources for historically-oriented nonprofits. Evan blends his passions for travel and photography through massive road trips that have encompassed each of the lower 48 states, Hawaii, and parts of Canada. He chronicles interesting post offices and communities through his blog, Going Postal: A Photo Journal of Post Offices and Places. He has been featured by major media outlets around the world, including NPR, the BBC World Service, The Washington Post, and Time Magazine. Gallery exhibits and a book are scheduled for 2015.
