Come along on an adventure into the depths of a northern winter with author Anders Morley as he presents his book This Land of Snow: A Journey Across the North in Winter, the story of his four-month journey through the wilds of northwestern Canada on cross-country skis. More than just a tale of adventure, the book is a meditation on the coldest season and on the approach of mid-life, which Booklist's Brenda Barrera has called "a captivating memoir" and "an eloquent ode to the harsh beauty of winter." Morley will discuss and share anecdotes from his journey, read from his book, and show photographs from along the way.
Please register at ptlib.org/snow. If you do not have access to a computer or Zoom and want to attend this program, please contact Sydney Krawiec at 724-941-9430 ext. 3260.
