Here at LARL, we have the Iditarod on our minds. The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is a long-distance race which is run in early March in Alaska.
Next week, the Detroit Lakes Public Library will present an Evening with Polar Explorer Paul Schurke in Detroit Lakes. This event is offered free of charge thanks to funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and will be held at the Historic Holmes Theater on Monday, February 11 at 7 p.m.
In the spirit of polar exploration, we’re pleased to present a few reading recommendations about the Iditarod.
