Join local author and Middleton resident, Dennis Schenborn, for a talk about his book,  “Heroes All:  Race To The Pole -- An Antarctic Tale.” 

In 1974, Dennis Schenborn survived a winter in the Antarctic in sight of Scott's Discovery Expedition Hut.  He has walked on the Antarctic Ice Barrier, traveled by dog sledge, man-hauled sledges across the ice, and slept in a tent at -50º F. 

His interest in the Amundsen and Scott expeditions began during his cold, dark Antarctic winter when he read their accounts and came away with more questions than answers. And so began his decades-long search for answers in hand-written expedition journals, first-person accounts, contemporary newspaper articles about the Amundsen and Scott expeditions.

*Copies of the book will not be sold at this event, but Dennis is happy to sign any copies purchased from Amazon.
