Best-selling author and photojournalist Brandon Stanton will open the Hanover College Enrichment Series’ 2017-18 season Friday, Nov. 17, with a 7 p.m. appearance in Collier Arena.

Stanton, selected one of Time magazine’s “30 People Under 30 Changing the World,” is a renowned author, photographer and blogger. His storytelling blog, “Humans of New York,” has more than 18 million likes on Facebook and seven million followers on Instagram.

In 2013, Stanton turned his online effort into the best-selling book, “Humans of New York.” Just two years later, he also reached the top of the New York Times best-sellers’ list with “Humans of New York Stories,” which delved deeper into the lives of Big Apple residents.

General admission tickets are now available. Seats cost just $15 each for adults, while tickets for children high-school age and younger (18-) are free. A meet-and-greet, book-signing session will follow the talk.

The Hanover Enrichment Series is presented by Tricia and Will Hagenah, with additional support from the McManaman Trust, German American Bank and the Indiana Arts Commission.

Note to media: video and photography will be allowed for a maximum of five minutes during Stanton's presentation.
