Join Atlas Obscura and our first ever Geographer-in-Residence, Eames Demetrios, on a 2-day a la carte Kcymaerxthaere storytelling caravan as we traverse three states (and a parallel universe).
Our 2-day adventure begins Saturday, September 27th in downtown Grand Rapids during Artprize, the world's largest art competition. Eames will guide participants to 5 parallel universe installations located in downtown Grand Rapids before hitting the road caravan-style to visit The New Singapore and Noizomi marker sites. We'll end our first day at the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art for an evening reception, where a current Kcymaerxthaere exhibit is taking place. The following morning our caravan is headed to Illinois, home to the Faerie Traces marker and Embassy Row historic site. We'll culminate our journey in Paris, IL at the 9th annual Kcymaerxthaere All Kymaericas Spelling Bee taking place the afternoon of September 28th.
All participants will be driving their own vehicles. Ride sharing and car pooling with friends is encouraged.

Travel Guide Volume Four: Kcymaerxthaere (Discover Leddl & Parts of kNow Estrelliia)
Volume 4 of a series of travel guides to an alternative universe known as Kcymaerxthaere, specifically the portions in what we call Europe. Kcymaerxthaere is a global work of 3 dimensional storytelling where the Geographer-at-Large has installed bronze plaques and historical sites that honor events in the fictional world in our linear world.
Leddl is largely consistent with what we call Europe and kNow Estrelliia quite consistent with what we call Britain, Ireland, Iceland and Greenland--and the surrounding waters.
With this book you can find and visit them, or sit back an enjoy the stories. You can read from either direction.
The stories featured include the fate of the clan of Nobunaga, a samurai from what we would call Japan who was blown off course in a terrible storm after barely surviving an assassination attempt from a trusted lieutenant.
