AUTHOR READING/BOOK SIGNING

The Polar Adventures of a Rich American Dame: A Life of Louise Arner Boyd by Joanna Kafarowski

After inheriting a staggering family fortune in her thirties, Louise Arner Boyd achieved international notoriety as a rugged and audacious polar explorer
while maintaining her flamboyant lifestyle as a leading philanthropist and society woman. Yet, despite organizing, financing and directing seven daring Arctic expeditions between 1926 and 1955, she is virtually unknown today. Join us as Dr. Joanna Kafarowski, Canadian geographer and lecturer, discusses her
recent book The Polar Adventures of a Rich American Dame: A Life of Louise Arner Boyd and explores Boyd’s fascinating life.
