Karen Land, Wednesday, June 16th

Location: Wright Park Bandshell

Time: 3:00pm

Karen Land is a writer, public speaker, and library-lover, giving Iditarod dog mushing presentations, from her own experience, at schools and libraries across the country. To date, she has delivered over 1000 talks in 35 states. Her presentation will include what it is like to run the Iditarod, which is nearly a 1,000-mile race that commemorates a 1925 emergency mission to send medical supplies to Nome, Alaska using sled dogs. In the sport of mushing, a sled dog team is often referred to as “a string of dogs.” Her current string is made up of an Alaskan husky named Noggin and a Corgi-Springer mix named Chloe. They will be joining in on the fun, too!
