Ada Blackjack: A True Story of Survival in the Arctic | Jennifer Niven

Journey into the Arctic with a young Inuit woman who signs on to cook and sew for a four-man expedition to remote Wrangel Island. They deal with ice storms, polar bears, scurvy, and near-starvation when promised supplies don’t arrive. After two years, only Ada and the expedition cat make it back. Join us for camaraderie and a great discussion led by Helen Huntley. 

Meeting location to be determined. Space is limited; registration required.
