4118 Main Street

The riveting story of a 54-day paddling adventure on the Back River in the northern wilderness of the Arctic. Jennifer Kingsley and her five companions battled raging winds, impenetrable sea ice, treacherous rapids, and agonizing physical endurance while contending with rising tensions among the group. But they also experience the lasting joy of grizzly sightings, icy swims, and the caribou’s summer migration.

Jennifer Kingsley will share stories and photographs from her trip, and talk about the transformative power of wilderness and the north. She will also sign copies of her book, Paddlenorth.
