The Detroit Lakes Public Library is joining the Polar Fest fun with a virtual event, held live on the library’s Facebook page. The free event will be held Thursday, February 11 at 7:00 p.m. and will feature Arctic photographer John Stember.

In this presentation, Stember will share about their lifestyle in the wilderness, how his life came to intersect with their path, and his photographic journey in the Arctic.
