In The Map Thief, award-winning investigative reporter Michael Blanding tells the true-life story of a map dealer-turned-criminal E. Forbes Smiley III, who stole more than $3 million worth of antique maps from rare-book libraries around the country. Smiley was ultimately caught in 2005 when an attentive librarian spotted a razor blade he dropped on the floor at Yale University, leading to the ultimate unraveling of his deceptions. Hear Blanding talk about exclusive new information about the case - including the first-ever interview with Smiley himself -- painting a compelling psychological portrait of a man driven by desperation to betray his friends and colleagues and deface the artifacts he loved more than anyone. In addition to talking about Smiley's thefts, Blanding will also talk about the rare and antique maps he stole, examining what makes them so beautiful, so valuable, and so tempting to steal.

Michael Blanding is a Boston-based investigative journalist whose work has appeared in The Nation, The New Republic, Slate, Salon, Consumers Digest, The Boston Globe Magazine, and Boston Magazine.
