History Book Group: “Icebound: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World”

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting six book discussions in March, including a new Speculative Fiction Novella Group. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email ktorresdal@decorahlibrary.org to be added to any of the six groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.

The History Book Group will meet via Zoom Thurs. March 17 at 3:00 p.m. to discuss Andrea Pitzer’s “Icebound: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World.” Long before Bering or Amundsen, long before Franklin or Shackleton, there was William Barents—in many ways the greatest polar explorer of them all. In this narrative of the Far North, enriched by her own adventurous sojourns in the Arctic, Andrea Pitzer brings Barents’ three harrowing expeditions to vivid life—while giving fascinating insights into one of history’s most intrepid navigators.

For more information, contact Tricia Crary (Friday Book Group), Zach Row-Heyveld (Cookbook Group) or Kristin Torresdal (Happy Hour, History, and Speculative Fiction Book Groups) at 563-382-3717.
