Local Author Talk: "This Land of Snow" by Anders Morley
Thursday, February 16, 2023
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 in the Auditorium. This Land of Snow is 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 Snow is a meditation on the coldest season and on the approach of mid-life, which Booklist's Brenda Barrera has called "a captivating memoir" and "an eloquent ode to the harsh beauty of winter." 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 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.
