Wednesday, January 20 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In 1914, explorer Ernest Shackleton sailed via the ship called Endurance to Antarctica. Just short of its destination, the ship became trapped in ice. This is the story of how Shackleton and his crew were forced to travel the 850 miles to the closest outpost of civilization.

Book Club will begin with a short presentation from the Newman Exploration Center, followed by a discussion of the book.
