Author Charles W. Johnson Talk & Book Signing for His New Book 'Ice Ship' 1/30/15 - 1/30/15
Please join us for a talk and slide presentation by Charles Johnson for his new book 'Ice Ship', the story of the extraordinary ship, the Fram. The book follows the ship from conception to construction, through 20 years of three epic expeditions, to its final resting place as a museum. It is also the story of the extraordinary men who steered the Fram over the course of 84,000 miles: a three-year, ice-bound drift, finding out what the Arctic really was; a remarkable four-year exploration of unmapped lands in the Canadian Arctic; and a two–year voyage to Antarctica, where Roald Amundsen claimed the South Pole. We promise an entertaining and interesting evening!
