About the Event
February’s reading, The Stowaway: A Young Man’s Extraordinary Adventure to Antarctica by Laurie Gwen Shapiro tells the true story of a scrappy teenager Billy Gawronsky from New York’s Lower East Side who in 1928 stowed away on an expedition to Antarctica, a voyage that led him to become a jazz age celebrity, a mascot for an up-by-your bootstraps era. Read this book and join Ann Wirtanen, Director of the Winchester Public Library, as she leads a discussion to further our enjoyment and understanding.
