About the Event
Come along on an adventure into the depths of a northern winter with Anders Morley, winner of the 2021 National Outdoor Book Award for travel writing, as he presents This Land of Snow, the story of his four-month journey through the wilds of northwestern Canada on cross-country skis. More than just a tale of adventure, This Land of Snowis a meditation on the coldest season and on the approach of mid-life. Morley will discuss and share anecdotes from his journey, read from his book, and show photographs from along the way. Anders Morley grew up in New Hampshire and began skiing at age five. He earned a master's degree from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He contributes regularly to New Hampshire magazine and his work has appeared in a variety of other publications including The Globe and Mail, Northern Woodlands magazine, Maisonneuve magazine, and The Aurorean. Morley lives in northern New Hampshire.
